4.3. Enabling File Formats

The new configuration parameter innodb_file_format controls whether such commands as CREATE TABLE and ALTER TABLE can be used to create tables that depend on support for the Barracuda file format.

The file format is a dynamic, global parameter that can be specified in the MySQL option file (my.cnf or my.ini) or changed with the SET GLOBAL command, as described in Section 9.5, “Configuring the InnoDB Plugin”.
