InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous PHP script-based applications like Magento and Joomla 3.x. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it works amazingly well when handling large amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole table to insert new information in a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle much more operations for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a much better database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – rules that specify how data inserts and modifications should be treated. If a specific operation hasn’t been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the content in the database will be retained intact and won’t be partially merged with newly appended content.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

Any PHP script-based software app that requires InnoDB will function flawlessly on our innovative cloud hosting platform and the database storage engine is available with all our cloud website hosting packages. 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 in question will make use of will be selected in accordance with the app’s requirements without having to modify any setting in your account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any application that requires this particular engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full potential. We will maintain daily backups of your content, so if you unintentionally delete a MySQL database that you need or you overwrite a specific part of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a couple of hours ago.

InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can run a PHP-driven web app that needs InnoDB with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, since all the accounts are created on our advanced cloud platform where the database storage engine is installed. A new database can be created in two different ways – manually from the Database Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, or automatically – in case you make use of our 1-click app installer tool. Either way, the required engine will be picked automatically as soon as the app’s activation begins, so you will not have to modify anything manually, irrespective of whether the app needs InnoDB or the more widely used MyISAM. Furthermore, we’ll always be able to recover any of your databases in case you unintentionally delete one, as we perform a couple of backups every day, each of which is preserved for 7 days.

InnoDB in VPS Servers

If you order a VPS server with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB database storage engine will be an indivisible part of the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on your server before we give it to you. You won’t have to set up anything manually and you will be able to install and use any open-source script-powered app that requires InnoDB when your VPS server is up and running, which takes no more than 1 hour after the order submission procedure itself. A few engines are available, so anytime you create a MySQL database via the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be activated when the app activation process begins and our system will recognize which engine is required by the application in question. If you need MyISAM, for example, you will not need to do anything different from installing the desired application, whether manually or using our app installer tool.

InnoDB in Dedicated Servers

InnoDB is available as standard with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. It’s an essential part of the standard software package that will be installed on all Hepsia-equipped servers, so as soon as your machine is up and running, you’ll be able to log in and to activate a various PHP script-powered web application that requires this database engine. When you create a new MySQL database through the hosting Control Panel, there won’t be any active engine till you start installing an application. Once the app installation wizard begins dumping content in the newly created database, the engine will be selected automatically in accordance with the prerequisites of the particular app, so you can use both MyISAM and InnoDB without selecting either of them explicitly at any time. Therefore, you can use an immense variety of applications for your Internet sites.
