InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous advantages which make it the engine of choice for plenty of PHP-driven software apps, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to carry out a given operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is treated. Simply put, adding new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back if any issue appears in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other hosting companies, it’s an essential part of the standard set of services that we are offering with our cloud hosting plans. If you want to make use of a script-powered app that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be activated and to function correctly, you will not need to deal with any obstacles since the MySQL storage engine is available on our custom-built cloud Internet hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you set up a brand-new MySQL database and install an app manually or use our one-click app installer software tool, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the application needs it instead of MyISAM. Besides the amazing database crash recovery that InnoDB offers, we also perform daily backups of all databases, so we can easily restore any MySQL database in your shared hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include InnoDB and you can get the most out of all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP script-driven software app that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud web hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the particular app. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To be on the safe side, we will perform regular database backups, so if anything goes wrong following some update or if you delete some data by mistake, we will be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS
All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to make use of any open-source script-powered software application that needs this particular database engine without needing to install anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS order form and your brand-new server will be up and running within the hour, so you can sign in and start creating your websites straight away. Once you create a new database and begin the app activation process, our system will choose the engine for that MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can make use of various applications at the same time without editing anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-based online blog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-powered online store that uses InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel include a software package that’s pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB storage engine, so you won’t need to activate it manually if you wish to run open-source PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to use such a script is to create a new database and to start the setup process – once the script installation wizard gets access to the database in question and starts importing data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the particular script. You’ll also be able to use scripts that need MyISAM, the other very popular MySQL engine, so you won’t need to edit any settings on the server. This will allow you to run different scripts on a single server and to use it to its full potential.
