InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous script-powered apps like Joomla v3 and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, since it works astonishingly well when handling large volumes of data. Rather than locking the entire table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can complete a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers an improved database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that define how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a particular task hasn’t been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the information in the database will be retained safe and sound and will not be partially mixed with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to run any script-based software application that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting service with us, as the database storage engine is present on our advanced 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 needed. You can run apps that use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any problem as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not need to update any setting manually at any point. In addition, we will also create regular backups of all the databases that you’ve got in the shared hosting account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to 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 hosting Control Panel provided with each of our semi-dedicated server accounts and you begin installing a PHP-driven application either manually or using our 1-click app installer tool, the storage engine for the database will be selected automatically based on the requirements of the specific application. Since InnoDB is available on the cloud website hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, it will be set as the default engine for each app that requires it without the need for any manual action on your end at any moment. To avoid any risk of losing data if you update an app or if you remove a database accidentally, we’ll generate backups of all your MySQL databases every day, so if anything goes wrong, we can recover your content.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already installed, so you will be able to take advantage of any PHP-driven software application that requires this particular MySQL database engine without installing anything manually. You can pick Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new VPS server will be set up within sixty minutes, so you can log in and start building your websites straight away. When you create a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will pick the engine for this database automatically. Thus, you can install different apps at the same time without changing anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-driven online blog that makes use of the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, and a Magento-based online store that makes use of the InnoDB engine, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated web hosting ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel include a software bundle that is pre-installed and besides everything else, you will get the InnoDB storage engine, so you won’t have to activate it manually in case you would like to run open-source PHP scripts that need it. All it takes to install such a script is to set up a new MySQL database and to start the setup – as soon as the installer wizard receives access to the database in question and begins inserting content into it, InnoDB will be set as the default engine for this database provided that it is the one required by the script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that need the other widely used MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you will not need to modify any settings on the server. This will enable you to activate different scripts on a single machine and to use the latter to its full capabilities.
