InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by famous script-powered web applications such as Magento and Joomla 3. It is perfect for scalable applications, as it works amazingly well when managing huge volumes of data. Instead of locking the entire table to append new information to a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can execute a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Furthermore, InnoDB offers an improved database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that prescribe how data inserts and updates should be treated. In case a certain task has not been fully completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will stay undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You can use any PHP script-based web application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a cloud hosting with us, as the storage engine is available on our innovative cloud platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can run applications which use the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any obstacle as well and, once again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to update anything manually at any moment. Furthermore, we’ll also carry out regular backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in your shared account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the past seven days.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is available with all our semi-dedicated servers by default, so once you purchase a new account, you can move on and install any script-powered web application that requires this MySQL database storage engine. A few engines are pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you create a new MySQL database and start installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be set on the basis of the prerequisites of the specific app. This will permit you to activate and run InnoDB-specific applications without having any problem and without needing to edit any settings in your semi-dedicated account. To be on the safe side, we’ll always keep a seven-day-old backup of all your databases, so if you erase or edit any content accidentally, we can swiftly recover it.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you will be able to make use of our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel to manage your web content. A Hepsia-equipped Virtual Private Server will permit you to activate any PHP script-based web app that requires InnoDB, as this particular storage engine is an integral part of the default software bundle that will be installed on the Virtual Private Server during its setup. When you create a brand new database via the Control Panel, you just need to begin installing an app – manually or using our application installer tool. InnoDB will be set as the default engine given that the app in question requires it, so you won’t need to do anything else in your VPS account. Likewise, if a given application needs MyISAM, it will be automatically set as the default engine for this particular database.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia hosting Control Panel is among the options which you can choose on the server configuration page when you buy a dedicated server from our company. As this is the most powerful type of hosting, it’s very likely that you’ll run highly popular websites that will attract many visitors, and since InnoDB is among the very best options for such Internet sites, we will activate it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. When you set up a brand new MySQL database in your account, there won’t be any active database engine until you begin installing a script, whether manually through your web browser or using the automatic script installation tool that is integrated into the Control Panel. The needed engine will be recognized and will be set for that database, so you can activate scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need the default MySQL engine, MyISAM, without running into any difficulty.
