NAME

mysql_convert_table_format - convert tables to use a given storage engine  

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, "Perl Installation Notes").

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.

--help

Display a help message and exit.

--force

Continue even if errors occur.

--host=host_name

Connect to the MySQL server on the given host.

--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 MySQL programs.

Specifying a password on the command line should be considered insecure. See Section 5.3.2.2, "End-User Guidelines for Password Security". You can use an option file to avoid giving the password on the command line.

--port=port_num

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

--socket=path

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

--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.

--user=user_name

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

--verbose

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

--version

Display version information and exit.
