InnoDB 1.1 for MySQL 5.5 User's Guide


This is the User's Guide for the InnoDB storage engine 1.1 for MySQL 5.5.

Beginning with MySQL version 5.1, it is possible to swap out one version of the InnoDB storage engine and use another (the plugin). This manual documents the latest InnoDB plugin, version 1.1, which works with MySQL 5.5 and features cutting-edge improvements in performance and scalability.

This User's Guide documents the procedures and features that are specific to the InnoDB storage engine 1.1 for MySQL 5.5. It supplements the general InnoDB information in the MySQL Reference Manual.

Because InnoDB 1.1 is integrated with MySQL 5.5, it is generally available (GA) and production-ready.

WARNING: Because the InnoDB storage engine 1.0 and above introduces a new file format, restrictions apply to the use of a database created with the InnoDB storage engine 1.0 and above, with earlier versions of InnoDB, when using mysqldump or MySQL replication and if you use the older InnoDB Hot Backup product rather than the newer MySQL Enterprise Backup product. See Section 1.4, “Compatibility Considerations for Downgrade and Backup”.
