InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has plenty of pluses that have made it the preferred engine for many PHP script-based apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to accomplish a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. In simpler words, adding new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if any problem shows up during the process, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.

InnoDB in Shared Hosting

You can install any PHP script-driven software application that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux shared hosting with us, as the MySQL database storage engine is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly if this engine is required. You can run applications which use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any impediment as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to edit any setting manually at any time. What’s more, we’ll also make regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

InnoDB is included with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service by default, so once you order a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any PHP script-based web application that requires this database engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a new database and start installing an application manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen depending on the concrete app’s requirements. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without the need to deal with any problem and without needing to update any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To avoid any risk, we will always have a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or change any content by mistake, we can easily restore it.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

You will not need to configure anything manually and you will be able to install and run any open-source script-powered software application that requires InnoDB once your VPS is ready, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order submission itself. Several engines are offered, so anytime you set up a database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected when the app installation begins and our system will automatically detect the engine that is required by the application in question. If you need to use MyISAM, for example, you won’t have to do anything different than installing the chosen application, whether manually or using our application installer tool.

The required engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for that database, so you can make use of scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without coming across any problem.
