How to convert table from InnoDB to MyISAM


Recommended Posts

I use PHPMyAdmin. I have to convert an InnoDB table to a MyISAM table. I then have to add a FULLTEXT index to two of the table's columns.


Is this how I should proceed?


1) Backup table by exporting its contents.

2) Go to "Relation view" and drop foreign key constraints.

3) ALTER TABLE `table_name` ENGINE = MyISAM;

4) ALTER TABLE `table_name` ADD FULLTEXT index_name (col1,col2);


Is that it? Is it safe?


Note that the table contains approximately 3,500 rows.
