NAME

mysql_convert_table_format - convert tables to use a given storage engine  

SYNOPSIS

mysql_convert_table_format [options] db_name
 

DESCRIPTION

Note

This utility is deprecated in MySQL 5.6.17 and removed in MySQL 5.7

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 2.13, lqPerl Installation Notesrq).

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 6.1.2.1, lqEnd-User Guidelines for Password Securityrq. 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.
