InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread PHP-based software applications such as Joomla v3 and Magento. It is excellent for scalable apps, as it works really well when processing enormous volumes of data. Rather than locking the whole table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can complete much more tasks for the same period of time. Also, InnoDB offers an improved database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign keys – rules that specify how data imports and modifications should be handled. If a particular task hasn’t been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will remain undamaged and will not be partially mixed with new content.
InnoDB in Hosting
Any open-source script-powered software app that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our advanced cloud platform and the storage engine is offered with all our hosting plans. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will use will be selected based on the app’s prerequisites without the need to modify any setting in your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to take advantage of its full capacity. We’ll keep regular backups of your content, so in case you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore everything the way it was just a couple of hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting by default, so as soon as you order a new account, you can move on and install any PHP-driven web app that requires the MySQL storage engine. A couple of engines are pre-installed on our cloud platform, so when you set up a brand-new database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be selected in accordance with the respective app’s requirements. This will permit you to install and run InnoDB-specific apps without any complications and without needing to edit any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content accidentally, we can quickly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS
If our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is selected during the signup process for a new Linux virtual private servers , InnoDB will be installed on the VPS server along with other required pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you decide to manage open-source script-driven apps that need this MySQL database storage engine. MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, will be activated as well. You can create a brand new MySQL database and start the app installation manually or through our one-click installation tool. The system will recognize the engine that the app in question requires and will set it for the specific MySQL database, so the installation will proceed impeccably and the app can enter its content into that database. Thus, you can activate applications with various prerequisites concerning the MySQL engine without having to make any modifications on your Virtual Private Server.
InnoDB in Dedicated Hosting
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can pick on the order form when you purchase a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of website hosting, it’s pretty likely that you’ll manage very popular websites that will attract many people, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such websites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. If you create a brand-new database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated MySQL database storage engine until you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually through your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be automatically recognized and will be assigned to that database, so you can activate scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, without encountering any difficulty.
