Question on MySQL database structure: Why 3 MyISAM tables?

Postby jamesbond » 12 Aug 2013, 02:17

Hi everyone,

first of all: thanks very much for this great application! I've been using it for 3 or 4 days now and I am totally excited about it. The installation on my server was completely hassle-free and thanks to the [url=http://tt-rss.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1981]fever plugin[/url] I have found an app for the iPhone (Reeder) and an app for the iPad (Mr. Reader) that I enjoy using when away from a computer keyboard.

Now to the topic of my post. I have a question on the MySQL database structure. The start page of the wiki says under "Requirements" --> "Server-side":

[quote="Wiki"]PostgreSQL or MySQL (InnoDB is required, MyISAM will not work).

As I am using MySQL, I was expecting that all tables created by ttrss would be of type InnoDB. To my surprise, that is not the case, as you can see in the following screenshot: http://s1.directupload.net/images/130811/atk8l76t.png

That means three tables are of type MyISAM (and two of them have a different collation from all the other tables).

My question is: Has this been done on purpose or maybe somehow slipped in accidentally?

Kind regards,
jamesbond.
