InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of strengths that make it the engine of choice for many PHP script-driven apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For example, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to accomplish a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, adding new or editing existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case a given problem appears in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
Any PHP script-based application that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and the storage engine is available with all our cloud hosting plans. Each time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without having to configure any setting in your account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you will be able to make the most of its full capacity. We will generate daily content backups, so in case you accidentally remove a database that you need or you overwrite specific parts of it, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was only a few hours earlier.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with InnoDB and you will be able to use all the features of this database storage engine with any open-source script-powered software application that requires it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the given app’s prerequisites. You won’t have to do anything manually to enable InnoDB, since it will be set as the default engine when you install an application – whether manually or using our one-click application installer tool. To avoid any risk, we’ll generate regular database backups, so if something goes wrong following some update or if you delete some content by mistake, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an essential part of the standard software package that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to set up anything manually and you will be able to enable and run any script-based software application that requires InnoDB once your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order process itself. A couple of engines are available, so every time you create a MySQL database through the Hepsia Control Panel, a particular engine will be activated when the app installation process starts and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different than installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
When you obtain a new dedicated server, you’ll be able to pick any of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – DirectAdmin, Hepsia and cPanel. Each server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not need to add this MySQL database engine manually to be able to run open-source script-powered software apps that need it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will supply you with all the system resources that you need in order to run large-scale sites, it’s quite likely that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a specific application requires MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you won’t run into any problem while using it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically once the app installation process commences, so you won’t need to alter any setting manually at any point.
