InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of strengths that make it the preferred engine for numerous PHP script-based apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding huge volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to perform a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is treated. In simpler words, appending new or editing existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue appears in the meantime, hence the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to activate any PHP script-based app that requires InnoDB in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting package with us, as the database engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate applications which use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any time. On top of that, we will also carry out regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB is available with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages by default, so once you obtain a new account, you can go ahead and activate any script-driven software app that requires the storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and start installing an app manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked depending on the particular app’s requirements. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without encountering any complication and without the need to modify any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To take no chances, we’ll always have a 7-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or alter any content by accident, we can swiftly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any open-source script-powered web app that requires the MySQL database engine without the need to configure anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your new VPS server will be up and running within 60 minutes, so you can log in and begin setting up your web sites right away. When you create a brand new database and begin the app activation process, our system will pick the engine for this MySQL database automatically. In this way, you can activate different apps simultaneously without modifying anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can set up a WordPress-powered personal blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-powered online shopping portal that uses InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that is pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to activate it manually in case you would like to activate scripts that require it. All it takes to run such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to begin the setup process – as soon as the script installation wizard gains access to the database in question and starts importing content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the particular script. You’ll also be able to run scripts that need MyISAM, the other popular MySQL engine, so you will not have to update any settings on the server. This will allow you to install different scripts on one single server and to use it to its fullest capabilities.
