InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous PHP script-driven web applications like Magento and Joomla 3. It’s excellent for scalable applications, because it works remarkably well when processing enormous volumes of data. Instead of locking the whole table to add new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can process much more operations for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a much faster database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that indicate how data inserts and updates should be handled. If a particular task hasn’t been entirely completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the database content will be retained undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly entered content.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You can activate any script-powered application that needs InnoDB in case you have a Linux website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is available on our advanced cloud platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can install applications that require the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to update any setting manually at any time. On top of that, we’ll also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared hosting account, so if you delete 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
If you create a brand-new MySQL database from the Control Panel provided with each of our semi-dedicated server packages and you begin installing an open-source script-driven app either manually or using our 1-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the database will be set automatically based on the particular app’s prerequisites. As InnoDB is present on the cloud platform where your new account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that requires it without any manual intervention required on your end at any point. To avoid any risk of losing data if you update an application or if you remove a database accidentally, we’ll perform backups of all your databases each and every day, so if something happens, we can restore your data.
InnoDB in VPS
In case our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is chosen during the signup process for a new Linux virtual private servers , InnoDB will be installed on the Virtual Private Server along with other required software, so you won’t need to do anything if you choose to run PHP script-powered apps that require this MySQL database engine. MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, will be activated as well. You can set up a brand-new database and start the app installation manually or through our 1-click installation tool. The system will detect the engine that the application in question requires and will set it for the specific database, so the installation will proceed flawlessly and the application can enter its content into that database. In this way, you can make use of apps with various requirements about the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your VPS server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a new dedicated server, you will be able to select one of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we’re offering – Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Each server ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with InnoDB pre-installed, so you will not have to add this MySQL storage engine manually to be able to use PHP script-powered software apps that require it. InnoDB is used for scalable applications and since a dedicated server will give you all the system resources that you need to run very large sites, it’s quite likely that you’ll use InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines as well, so if a specific application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not have to deal with any obstacle while using it. The engine that will be used will be automatically recognized the moment the app installation begins, so you won’t have to modify any settings manually at any point.
