InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, because it offers a much better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous web developers that run highly scalable applications, because it works more effectively with immense data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. Furthermore, it uses row-level locking in case any information should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire database table and hence need more time to execute multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for any reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest releases of Joomla are two instances of widespread script-based apps which have switched to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
Any PHP-based web application that requires InnoDB will run flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and the MySQL database storage engine is available with all our cloud website hosting plans. Each time you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation process is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s prerequisites without the need to configure any setting in your account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full potential. We will keep daily content backups, so if you unintentionally erase a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite a certain part of it, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was only several hours ago.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with a software bundle that’s pre-activated and besides everything else, you’ll get the InnoDB database storage engine, so you won’t need to install it manually if you would like to activate PHP scripts that require it. All it takes to use such a script is to set up a new database and to start the setup process – as soon as the setup wizard gets access to the database in question and begins dumping data in it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the script. You’ll also be able to activate scripts that require the other popular MySQL engine, MyISAM, so you won’t need to change any settings on the dedicated server. This will enable you to install a variety of scripts on a single server and to use it to its maximum capabilities.
