InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it provides a significantly better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous programmers that create scalable software applications, since it works much better with enormous amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. In addition, it locks only a single row in the database in case any info should be updated, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore require more time to perform multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two instances of famous PHP script-based software platforms which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to run any PHP script-based web application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue impeccably if this engine is required. You can activate applications which require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t need to configure any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we’ll also create regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you set up a brand new MySQL database from the hosting Control Panel coming with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you start installing a script-powered application either manually or using our one-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be selected automatically depending on the given app’s prerequisites. As InnoDB is present on the cloud hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for any application that needs it without the need for any manual action on your end at any moment. To prevent any risk of losing information if you update an app or if you remove a database accidentally, we will make a backup of all your databases every day, so if something happens, we can retrieve your content.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
All VPS service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you will be able to take advantage of any open-source script-powered software app that requires the MySQL storage engine without the need to configure anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand-new VPS server will be ready within one hour, so you can log in and begin setting up your web sites straight away. Once you set up a brand new MySQL database and start the app installation process, our system will choose the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can make use of different apps simultaneously without having to change anything on the VPS server. You can have a WordPress-driven personal weblog that uses the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-driven online shop that makes use of InnoDB, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with a software package that is pre-installed and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t have to add it manually if you need to activate PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to install such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to initiate the installation – once the 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 as long as it is the one required by the script. You will also be able to activate scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine – MyISAM, so you won’t need to update any settings on the dedicated server. This will permit you to install different scripts on one single physical server and to use the latter to its fullest capabilities.
