InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widely used script-powered apps like Joomla 3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable applications, as it works exceptionally well when managing huge data volumes. Instead of locking the entire database table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can execute a lot more operations for the same length of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a much better database crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that specify how data imports and updates should be handled. If a specific operation has not been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will stay safe and sound and will not be partially merged with newly appended content.
InnoDB in Hosting
Every PHP-powered app that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and the database engine is available with all our hosting plans. Every time you create a 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 prerequisites without having to modify any setting in your shared account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any application that requires this specific engine and you will be able to get the most out of its full capacity. We will create daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally remove a database that’s important to you or you overwrite specific parts of it, we will be able to restore your database the way it was only a couple of hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include InnoDB and you can get the most out of all the features offered by this database engine with any PHP script-based software application that requires it. It is among the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be picked depends on the requirements of the particular app. You won’t have to do anything manually in order to enable InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine whenever you install an application – whether manually or using our 1-click app installer tool. To be on the safe side, we’ll maintain daily backups of all your databases, so if something goes wrong after some update or if you remove some data unintentionally, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is selected during the registration process for your new VPS servers , InnoDB will be activated on the server together with other essential pieces of software, so you will not need to do anything if you choose to make use of PHP-based web applications that need this MySQL database engine. The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated too. You can set up a brand new MySQL database and begin the app installation procedure manually or through our one-click installer tool. The system will detect the engine that the app in question requires and will set it for the specific database, so the installation process will continue impeccably and the application can enter its content into that database. Therefore, you can manage apps with different prerequisites with regard to the MySQL engine without the need to make any changes on your VPS.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is one of 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 web hosting, it is pretty likely that you’ll manage popular websites that will draw many people, and since InnoDB is one of the best options for such websites, we will enable it along with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed dedicated server. If you set up a new MySQL database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine until you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your Internet browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be recognized and will be set for the database in question, so you can use scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require the default MySQL engine – MyISAM, without encountering any complication.
