InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it provides a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous programmers that create scalable web apps, because it works much more effectively with huge data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Additionally, it uses row-level locking in case any info should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire database table and hence require more time to handle several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or data loss. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two instances of famous PHP-based web applications which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
You can install any PHP script-driven app that needs InnoDB if you have a shared web hosting with us, as the storage engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is required. You can run applications that need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to modify any setting manually at any time. What’s more, we’ll also create regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the shared hosting account, so in case you delete or overwrite something, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of the features which you can select on the server configuration page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s rather likely that you’ll run very popular websites that will attract a lot of people, and since InnoDB is one of the very best options for such sites, we’ll install it together with all the other software apps that are offered with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you create a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The needed engine will be detected automatically and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without needing to cope with any impediment.
