InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, because it offers a much better overall performance and an improved database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of developers that write highly scalable software apps, due to the fact that it works more efficiently with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. What’s more, it locks only a single database row in case any information should be modified, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need much more time to fulfill multiple successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB follows the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification cannot be completed for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two examples of popular open-source script-powered software applications which have switched over to InnoDB.

InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting

All Linux dedicated servers hosting packages ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include a software bundle that is pre-installed and among everything else, you will get the InnoDB database engine, so you won’t have to add it manually in case you’d like to use scripts that need it. All it takes to install such a script is to create a new MySQL database and to initiate the setup process – as soon as the setup wizard gains access to the database and starts entering data into it, InnoDB will be set as the default MySQL engine for this database provided that it is the one needed by the particular script. You will also be able to activate scripts that require MyISAM, the other very popular MySQL engine, so you won’t have to modify any settings on the dedicated server. This will allow you to use a variety of scripts on a single machine and to use it to its fullest capabilities.
