About database engine

  • InnoDB is used by default
  • MyISAM was used in earlier years
Transaction support New version support support
Data row locking I won’t support it support
Foreign key constraints I won’t support it support
Full text index support Support after MySQL 5.6
Table space size less Larger, about 2 times

Regular use:

  • MyISAM saves space and is fast
  • InnoDB has high security, transaction processing, multi table and multi-user operation

The location of existence in physical space

All database files are stored in the data directory, and a folder corresponds to a database.
The essence is the storage of files!

Differences of MySQL engine in physical files

  • InnoDB has only one *. Frm file in the database and the ibdata1 file in the superior directory
  • MyISAM file
    • *Definition file of. SDI table structure
    • *. MyD data file (data)
    • *. MYI index file (index)

Set character set encoding for database tables

If it is not set, it will be MySQL’s default character set encoding. MySQL 5.7 is Latin1, which does not support Chinese. MySQL 8.0 starts with utf8mb4.
