MyISAM on master and InnoDB on slave server

1 New Member
Is this possible to have a MyISAM table on master server and change its storage engine (to InnoDB) on slave server in a replication environment?

If this is possible, what should I consider before changing MyISAM to InnoDB on slave server?

Here is the table structure
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. CREATE TABLE `messages` (
  2.   `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  3.   `subject` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
  4.   `message` text NOT NULL,
  5.   `attachment_path` varchar(255) default NULL,
  6.   `new` tinyint(4) NOT NULL default '0',
  7.   PRIMARY KEY  (`id`)

You can have different storage engines on master and slave.

I have a very simple problem (I hope). Our master database ran out of connections and we had to restart the server (couldn't SSH into the box). Rebooting the server worked and of our clients resumed activity. The problem is that the slave didn't start automatically so I tried to do a START SLAVE; on it. This is the latest shown in the error log on the slave.

I'm wondering if there is a way to retrieve Foreign Key declaration information on both MyISAM and InnoDB tables. Of course, I understand that MyISAM doesn't support Foreign Keys, however, it does still parse FK declarations within a CREATE TABLE statement, and moreover, it even creates an index on the column that is the Foreign Key. So my question is for this sample CREATE TABLE declaration:

Hi, Besides transaction capability, is there anything else about innodb tables that makes it superior to myISAM? I really don’t need transactions, but for example, I need superior reliability for index (too many index corruptions in the past). Is innodb better in that area, or any other areas? -- Posted using the http://www.dbforumz.com interface, at author's request

After a failure, we promoted a slave to master. This included renaming the server to the old master's name and ip address, but leaving the server id alone. The new master works fine. We repaired the old server, gave it a different name and ip address but leaving the server id the same. I get the following error on the slave:

Hi there I have a database with about 20 or so tables, maybe a few thousand rows in each. I am starting to do more complex things with my insertions etc, and I want to start to use transactions, so I imagine I should change some table types in the database from MyISAM to InnoDB. I know that InnoDB tables are a completely different beast than MyISAM in terms of data storage etc... ie: instead of using folders on the server, everything...
