MySQL plugin to disable creating MYISAM tables.

usage

first, compile the plugin and install in to plugin dir

cp -r src /path/to/mysql-src/plugin/disable_myisam
cd /path/to/mysql-src
cmake . -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release
cd plugin/disable_myisam
make
make install

CAUTION: mysql plugins MUST be built using the same version of the source code and the same build arguments. If mysqld is built as a debug version without cmake parameter -DBUILD_CONFIG, the parameter must not be added when compiling plugins.

then, load the plugin into mysql

mysql> INSTALL PLUGIN DISABLE_MYISAM SONAME 'disable_myisam.so';

MYISAM tables can not be created now.

mysql> CREATE TABLE `test4` (
  `id` int(11) AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `value` varchar(30),
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM;
ERROR 1030 (HY000): Got error 1 from storage engine

There is also a global variable disable_myisam_allow_sys to control whether creating MYISAM table in system databases like mysql or tmp is allowed.

mysql> show variables like '%allow_sys%';
+--------------------------+-------+
| Variable_name            | Value |
+--------------------------+-------+
| disable_myisam_allow_sys | OFF   |
+--------------------------+-------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> use mysql;
Database changed
mysql> create table x(id int primary key)engine=myisam;
ERROR 1030 (HY000): Got error 1 from storage engine
mysql> set global disable_myisam_allow_sys=1;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
