  • Resolved bacior17


    Hi guys,

    My client has installed WP on myISAM databases. Is it ok? Should I change tables into InnoDB engine? I’m just afraid that one day with new WP upgrade something bad happen. I’m also afraid to change it now as it works good now.

    InnoDB is a bit more reliable; I always set the default engine to InnoDB when creating a WP database.

    The wordpress code for creating tables does not care about which engine is by default. all themes and plugins should take this aspect into consideration related to the wordpress source code so if a plugin wants to perform a FULL TEXT search you must ensure that the table is in MyISAM or InnoDb 5.6.4 or the foreign keys InnoDb 5.x code WordPress wp-db.php hide errors bye default.
