InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by well known PHP-powered web applications like Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable applications, because it performs remarkably well when managing large volumes of data. Instead of locking the entire database table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle a lot more tasks for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a faster database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that determine how data inserts and modifications should be handled. In case a particular task has not been fully completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be retained safe and sound and won’t be partially mixed with newly imported content.

InnoDB in Hosting

Any PHP script-based software application that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our advanced cloud hosting platform and the database storage engine is offered with all our hosting plans. Whenever you create a MySQL database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is started, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected based on the app’s prerequisites without the need to change any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full potential. We’ll perform regular content backups, so if you unintentionally delete a database that you need or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore your content the way it was only a couple of hours earlier.

InnoDB in VPS Hosting

If you order a virtual private server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database engine will be an integral part of the software package that will be pre-installed on your Virtual Private Server before we give it to you. You won’t have to configure anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and use any PHP-based web application that needs InnoDB as soon as your Virtual Private Server is up and running, which takes no more than sixty minutes after the order process itself. A number of engines are offered, so whenever you create a database through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, a specific engine will be selected when the app installation process starts and our system will recognize the engine that is required by the application in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not need to do anything different than installing the app of your preference, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

InnoDB comes by default with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s an integral part of the software bundle that will be pre-installed on all Hepsia-equipped dedicated servers, so as soon as your machine is assembled, you’ll be able to log in and to activate a various PHP script-based web application that needs this particular storage engine. If you create a new MySQL database through the Control Panel, there won’t be any activated engine until you begin installing an application. As soon as the app setup wizard starts inserting information into the database, the engine will be chosen automatically in accordance with the given app’s prerequisites, so you can use both InnoDB and MyISAM without selecting either one of them specifically at any time. Therefore, you can make use of an extensive range of applications for your sites.
