InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widely used PHP-driven software apps such as Joomla v3 and Magento. It is perfect for scalable applications, as it performs stunningly well when managing large amounts of data. Instead of locking the whole table to append new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can carry out much more operations for the same period of time. In addition, InnoDB offers a much better database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a particular operation has not been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be retained undamaged and will not be partially mixed with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Hosting
You can use any PHP-driven web application that needs InnoDB in case you have a Linux hosting with our company, as the database engine is present on our innovative 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 proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can run apps that need the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any obstacle as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you won’t have to update anything manually at any point. In addition, we’ll also generate daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your account, so if you erase or overwrite something, we can swiftly restore it the way it was on any of the previous seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you set up a brand new MySQL database from the Control Panel coming with each of our semi-dedicated server plans and you begin installing a PHP-driven software application either manually or using our 1-click application installer tool, the storage engine for the MySQL database will be set automatically based on the prerequisites of the specific application. As InnoDB is present on the cloud platform where your new semi-dedicated account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that needs it without the need for any manual action on your end at any moment. To avoid any chance of losing data if you update an application or if you erase a database by mistake, we will carry out a backup of all your MySQL databases each day, so if something goes wrong, we can recover your data.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
When you acquire a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to make use of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will allow you to run any open-source script-driven application that requires InnoDB, as the database storage engine is included in the default software package that will be installed on the server during its configuration. When you create a new database using the Control Panel, you’ll simply need to start installing an app – manually or using our app installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine on the condition that the application in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. In the same manner, if a certain app requires MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
InnoDB is available by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It is an integral part of the standard software bundle that will be installed on all Hepsia-managed dedicated servers, so once your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to activate any type of open-source script-powered web app that needs this particular MySQL storage engine. When you set up a new MySQL database via the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an app. As soon as the app configuration wizard begins dumping information in the database, the engine will be chosen automatically depending on the prerequisites of the application in question, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either one explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can make use of a broad variety of apps for your websites.
