Converting table from MyISAM to INNODB in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, use ALTER command. Let us first create a table. The default engine is set as“MYISAM” −

mysql> create table DemoTable
-> (
-> ClientId int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
-> ClientName varchar(100),
-> ClientAge int,
-> ClientCountryName varchar(100),
-> isMarried boolean,
-> PRIMARY KEY(ClientId)
-> )ENGINE=MyISAM;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.67 sec)

Following is the query to convert table from MyISAM to INNODB −

mysql> alter table DemoTable ENGINE=InnoDB;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (1.97 sec)
Records: 0 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0

Let us now check the status of table −

mysql> show create table DemoTable;

Output

This will produce the following output displaying the updated ENGINE as InnoDB −
