Converting from InnoDB to MyISAM
Clone this wiki locally
Up to the June the 1st 2014 Etherpad ran InnoDB by default on MySQL. MyISAM will give you ~10x more performance than InnoDB so we recommend using that for your MySQL enabled Etherpad instance.
Existing sites can change their database format to MyISAM by following the instructions below
## stop Etherpad-lite instance. sudo /etc/init.d/etherpad-lite stop ## optional backup etherpad-lite db before changes. mysqldump -uetherpad-lite -pYourSecretPassword etherpad-lite > /somelocation/etherpad.sql ## change table structure on mysql server mysql -uetherpad-lite -pYourSecretPassword USE etherpad-lite; ALTER TABLE store ENGINE = MyISAM; quit ## update etherpad (ideally doing a git pull) ## Start etherpad-lite sudo /etc/init.d/etherpad-lite start
