Title: Bug or feature?
Post by: franzpeter on July 18, 2011, 12:01:16 pm
Using MySQL 5.5.xx, all database tables become as type: MyISAM and Collation utf8_general_ci exept of one: jos_virtuemart_order_shipper_weight_countries. That table has InnoDB as engine. Is that a wrong declaration while installing the database or is it a feature to use InnoDB for that table?

Good question.

I dont know myself. Using inndb for the small plugin table mostly used for storing orders make sense. In fact the plugin writer decides that. Valerie wrote the paypal plugin, so maybe she did that on purpose.

I don't think that mixture of InnoDB and MyISAM produces errors, as long as there are no foreign key constraints inside the mentioned table.

It is a probably a mistake.
