InnoDB is a database engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread open-source script-driven apps such as Joomla 3.x and Magento. It’s ideal for scalable applications, as it performs astonishingly well when managing large volumes of data. Instead of locking the entire database table to insert new information in a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can process a lot more operations for the same length of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers a better database crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that define how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a given operation has not been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will be retained undamaged and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting
Any PHP script-based web application that needs InnoDB will function flawlessly on our leading-edge cloud platform and the MySQL database engine is offered with all our cloud website hosting plans. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will make use of will be selected on the basis of the app’s specifications without having to configure any setting in your shared hosting account. InnoDB will be chosen automatically for any app that requires this particular engine and you will be able to make the most of its full capacity. We will perform regular backups of your content, so if you unintentionally remove a database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we’ll be able to restore the database the way it was just a few hours ago.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Servers
InnoDB is included with all our semi-dedicated servers by default, so the moment you create a new semi-dedicated account, you can move on and activate any script-driven app that requires this MySQL database storage engine. A few engines are installed on our cloud hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing an application manually, or opt to make use of the Hepsia Control Panel-integrated application installer tool, the engine for the database will be picked in accordance with the requirements of the respective app. This will allow you to install and run InnoDB-specific applications without running into any predicament and without needing to edit any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always keep a one-week-old backup of all your MySQL databases, so if you remove or edit any content by accident, we can quickly retrieve it.
