InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many web developers that run scalable apps, because it works much better with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. Furthermore, it locks only a single row in the database in case any information should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and hence need much more time to process multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla™ are two instances of widely used script-driven software applications which have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You will be able to use any open-source script-driven application that needs InnoDB in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting
with our company, as the database engine is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform by default. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will continue flawlessly if this engine is required. You can activate apps that require the MyISAM engine without encountering any problem as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to update anything manually at any point. Furthermore, we’ll also perform daily backups of all the databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous seven days.

The default MySQL engine – MyISAM, will be activated as well. You can create a brand new MySQL database and start the app installation manually or using our one-click installation tool. The system will automatically detect which engine the particular application needs and will assign it to the specific database, so the installation will proceed flawlessly and the app can dump its content in that database. Therefore, you can activate applications with various requirements about the MySQL engine without having to make any changes on your Virtual Private Server.

Each server ordered with Hepsia comes with InnoDB pre-activated, so you won’t have to install this MySQL database storage engine manually to be able to use PHP-driven apps that need it. InnoDB is used by scalable apps and since a dedicated server will give you all the server resources that you require in order to run large-scale websites, it’s pretty likely that you’ll resort to InnoDB. You’ll be able to make use of other engines too, so in case a certain application needs MyISAM instead of InnoDB, you will not need to deal with any impediment while managing it. The engine that will be used will be recognized automatically the moment the app installation commences, so you will not have to alter any settings manually at any time.
