InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of strengths which make it the preferred engine for numerous PHP script-driven apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing immense data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to accomplish a certain operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. Simply put, importing new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a given issue appears in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

Every script-powered software app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our advanced cloud web hosting platform and the database engine is available with all our cloud website hosting packages. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database in question will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will keep regular content backups, so if you unintentionally erase a database that’s important to you or you overwrite a specific part of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was just a few hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you set up a brand-new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel coming with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing a script-driven web app either manually or using our single-click application installer, the database storage engine will be selected automatically on the basis of the given app’s requirements. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be created, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without the need for any manual intervention on your end at any point. To avoid any risk of losing info if you update an application or if you erase a database unintentionally, we’ll generate backups of all your databases each day, so if anything goes wrong, we can retrieve your data.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from us, you will be able to take full advantage of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will permit you to run any PHP script-powered app that requires InnoDB, as this MySQL database storage engine is included in the default software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server during its setup. When you create a brand-new database using the Control Panel, you will simply need to begin installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question needs it, so you won’t have to do anything else in your account. Likewise, if an application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular MySQL database.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is part of the software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-managed servers, so as soon as your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to sign in and to activate a various PHP script-based web application that requires this particular MySQL database engine. If you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you start installing an app. As soon as the app activation wizard begins dumping data in the newly created database, the engine will be chosen automatically based on the requirements of the particular application, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one explicitly at any moment. In this way, you can use a huge collection of apps for your Internet sites.
