Manual Reference Pages  -  MYSQL_CONVERT_TABLE_FORMAT (1)

NAME

mysql_convert_table_format - convert tables to use a given storage engine

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

mysql_convert_table_format [options] db_name

DESCRIPTION

mysql_convert_table_format converts the tables in a database to use a particular storage engine (MyISAM by default). mysql_convert_table_format is written in Perl and requires that the DBI and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed (see Section 2.15, \(lqPerl Installation Notes\(rq).

Invoke mysql_convert_table_format like this:

shell> mysql_convert_table_format [options]db_name

The db_name argument indicates the database containing the tables to be converted.

mysql_convert_table_format supports the options described in the following list.

o

o --help

Display a help message and exit.

o

o --force

Continue even if errors occur.

o

o --host=host_name

Connect to the MariaDB server on the given host.

o

o --password=password

The password to use when connecting to the server. Note that the password value is not optional for this option, unlike for other MariaDB programs.

Specifying a password on the command line should be considered insecure. You can use an option file to avoid giving the password on the command line.

o

o --port=port_num

The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

o

o --socket=path

For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.

o

o --type=engine_name

Specify the storage engine that the tables should be converted to use. The default is MyISAM if this option is not given.

o

o --user=user_name

The MariaDB user name to use when connecting to the server.

o

o --verbose

Verbose mode. Print more information about what the program does.

o

o --version

Display version information and exit.
