mysql_convert_table_format [options] db_name


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

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.


--helpDisplay a help message and exit.
--forceContinue even if errors occur.
--host=host_nameConnect to the MariaDB server on the given host.
--password=passwordThe password to use when connecting to the server. Note that the password value is not optional for this option, unlike for other client programs. Specifying the password on the command-line is generally considered insecure.
--port=port_numThe TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.
--socket=pathFor connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.
--type=engine_nameSpecify the storage engine that the tables should be converted to use. The default is MyISAM if this option is not given.

--verboseVerbose mode. Print more information about what the program does.
