InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has many pluses that make it the engine of choice for lots of PHP script-based software apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single database row to carry out a certain 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 information is tackled. Put simply, importing new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue occurs during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
While InnoDB is either not available or a paid upgrade with many web hosting companies, it is part of the default set of features that we are offering with our cloud web hosting packages. If you want to use a PHP-driven web app that needs InnoDB in particular, in order to be activated and to operate properly, you won’t come across any difficulties as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our custom cloud platform. No matter if you create a brand-new MySQL database and install an app manually or take advantage of our 1-click app installer instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the specific app needs it rather than MyISAM. In addition to the exceptional crash recovery offered by InnoDB, we also maintain regular backups of all databases, so that we can swiftly recover any database in your shared web hosting account.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included with each of our semi-dedicated hosting service by default, so once you create a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any PHP script-driven software application that requires this MySQL database storage engine. Several engines are installed on our cloud platform, so when you create a brand new database and begin installing an app manually, or decide to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer, the engine for the database will be selected on the basis of the requirements of the particular app. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without any complication and without configuring any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you remove or edit any content by accident, we can quickly rescue it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to take full advantage of our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will allow you to manage any script-based app which needs InnoDB, as this MySQL database storage engine is an integral part of the standard software package that will be installed on the VPS server during its configuration. When you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, you simply have to start installing an application – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question needs it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if an application requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this concrete database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes as standard with all Linux dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the software package that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to install any type of PHP script-based web application that needs this particular MySQL database storage engine. If you set up a new database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an application. Once the app setup wizard starts dumping data in the newly created database, the engine will be chosen automatically based on the requirements of the particular application, so you can run both MyISAM and InnoDB without having to select either of them explicitly at any moment. Therefore, you can use a huge variety of apps for your Internet sites.
