MySQL Setup

MySQL and Transactions

TurboGears requires transations. MySql's default database engine does support transactions (MyISAM table is the default). TurboGears requires INNODB tables.

when the command:

tg-admin sql create

is issued, the default table type is used.

Mike summerized the options in an excellent email.

Hi Mike,

I'm using MySQL with turbogears and they're working very nicely
together for me. What you need to do is to configure MySQL so that it
uses InnoDB as the default storage engine as Jonathan pointed out, so
that when you issue a create table statement, it'll be an InnoDB table
by default.

Do you have the MySQL Administrator GUI installed? If so, select
StartUp Variables from the left pane, then choose the General
Parameters tab. Down the bottom you'll see a Default Storage section.
Choose InnoDB from the drop-down.

Alternatively, you could add the following line to the [mysqld] section
of your my.ini file:
