InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has many strong sides which make it the engine of choice for numerous PHP script-powered web apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to complete a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. To put it simply, appending new or updating existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case a certain problem occurs during the process, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Every script-driven software app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and the database storage engine comes with all our cloud hosting packages. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s specifications without the need to change any setting in your hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We’ll maintain daily backups of your content, so in case you unintentionally delete a database that is important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we will be able to restore everything the way it was just several hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can activate a PHP script-powered application that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, due to the fact that all the accounts are created on our avant-garde cloud platform where the MySQL database storage engine is installed. A new MySQL database can be set up in two ways – manually through the Database Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, or automatically – when you take advantage of our single-click app installer tool. In either case, the needed engine will be picked automatically the moment the installation of the application starts, so you won’t have to edit anything manually, regardless of whether the application requires InnoDB or the more regularly used MyISAM. In addition, we’ll always be able to restore any of your databases in case you remove one by accident, as we carry out several backups every day, each of which is stored for 1 whole week.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
In case our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is picked during the registration process for your new Linux VPS web hosting packages , InnoDB will be installed on the VPS server along with other needed pieces of software, so you won’t need to do anything if you decide to manage PHP script-powered software apps that need this MySQL storage engine. MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be installed as well. You can create a new database and start the app installation procedure manually or using our 1-click installer tool. The system will detect the engine that the particular application needs and will assign it to the specific MySQL database, so the installation will continue impeccably and the application can insert its data into that database. Thus, you can run applications with various prerequisites regarding the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you buy a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick any of the three Control Panels offered by us – Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Any dedicated server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you will not have to install this MySQL database engine manually to be able to manage script-driven web apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the resources that you need in order to run large-size Internet sites, it’s rather likely that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a particular application requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t encounter any complication while running it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized when the app installation procedure starts, so you will not need to alter any setting manually at any point.
