When Mysql is installed, Innodb Engine is set to ON by default. You can verify whether Innodb is set to On or Off by using ‘mysqladmin variables’. Login to the server as root and execute:

[email protected] [~]# mysqladmin variables | grep have_innodb
| have_innodb                     | ENABLED

To turn off Innodb, you need to edit the Mysql Configuration file at /etc/my.cnf and add the following line:


Save the file and restart the mysql service. You now execute the ‘mysqladmin variables’ to check the status of Innodb engine.
