InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widespread PHP script-driven software applications such as Joomla™ 3 and Magento. It’s perfect for scalable applications, because it works incredibly well when handling immense amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole database table to add new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can complete much more operations for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a much better database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that determine how data inserts and updates should be treated. In case a given task hasn’t been entirely completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be kept safe and sound and will not be partially merged with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
Every PHP script-driven web app that needs InnoDB will run impeccably on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and the storage engine is offered 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 is started, the engine that the database will use will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without the need to update any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you will be able to make the most of its full potential. We’ll perform regular backups of your content, so in case you accidentally erase a database that is important to you or you overwrite some part of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was just a few hours ago.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
In case our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is picked during the signup process for your new Linux virtual private servers
, InnoDB will be installed on the VPS server together with other needed pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you decide to make use of PHP script-powered web apps that need this MySQL database storage engine. MyISAM, the default MySQL engine, will be installed too. You can create a brand new database and begin the app installation process manually or through our one-click installer. The system will automatically detect the engine that the particular app needs and will assign it to the specific MySQL database, so the installation process will proceed impeccably and the app can dump its data in that database. In this way, you can install apps with various requirements with regard to the MySQL engine without the need to make any modifications on your Virtual Private Server.
