InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by popular open-source script-powered web apps like Magento and Joomla 3. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it works amazingly well when processing huge data volumes. Instead of locking the entire table to append new information to a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can carry out a lot more operations for the same period of time. Also, InnoDB offers a better database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that specify how data imports and modifications should be treated. In case a certain operation has not been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will stay safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
You can make use of any open-source script-based software app that needs InnoDB if you have a Linux shared web hosting plan with our company, as the database engine is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can install applications which need the MyISAM engine without any problems as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to configure anything manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you will be able to get the most out of all the features offered by this MySQL database engine with any PHP-based software application that needs it. InnoDB is one of the engines that we have on our cloud platform, so the one that will be used depends on the given app’s prerequisites. You will not need to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click app installer tool. To avoid any risk, we will perform daily MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong following some update or if you erase some data by accident, we will be able to get the database back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to make use of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-managed VPS will allow you to manage any PHP script-driven web application that needs InnoDB, as this database storage engine is an essential part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on the server during its setup. When you set up a brand new database via the hosting Control Panel, you’ll simply have to begin installing an application – manually or using our application installer. InnoDB will be set as the default engine if the app in question needs it, so you will not have to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if an app needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
InnoDB comes as standard with all dedicated web hosting plans ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It is included in the standard software bundle that we install on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so once your physical machine is ready, you will be able to sign in and to activate any kind of PHP-based web app that requires this particular database engine. When you set up a new database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine till you begin installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard starts importing content into the newly created database, the engine will be picked automatically based on the prerequisites of the particular application, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without the need to select either one of them specifically at any moment. In this way, you can make use of a wide collection of apps for your sites.
