InnoDB Plugin 1.0 for MySQL 5.1 User's Guide  /  ...  /  Accessing COMPRESSED or DYNAMIC Tables

11.4.1. Accessing COMPRESSED or DYNAMIC Tables

The built-in InnoDB in MySQL can only open tables that were created in REDUNDANT or COMPACT format. Starting with MySQL version 5.0.21, an attempt to open a table in some other format results in ERROR 1146 (42S02): Table 'test.t' doesn't exist. Furthermore, a message unknown table type appears in the error log.

In the InnoDB Plugin, you may rebuild an incompatible table by issuing a statement ALTER TABLE table_name ROW_FORMAT=COMPACT.
