See Documentation for migration from MyISAM to InnoDB for the current discussion which prompted the creation of this page. --Frank Ralf 11:41, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

MySQL Configuration

Before attempting to change the table type, you should:

  • check InnoDB is enabled. Log in to MySQL and run the command SHOW ENGINES. Make sure that support for InnoDB shows either "YES" or "DEFAULT".
  • set innodb_file_per_table if required. This setting can be useful for large installations, but it only affects newly created tables and can't be applied retrospectively.
