No INNODB Support on Server

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install concrete5 on a clients server which has no INNODB-Support for mySQL. The installation always throws out an error message saying "Unknown storage engine 'INNODB'.

I contacted the hosting provider, they say it's my problem. Does anyone have a solution on how to install cocrete5 on that server?

A hoster who doesn't support InnoDB is pretty interesting.. It's even the default storage engine since 5.5 and offers a lot of advantages over MyISAM.

Personally, I'd never work with a hoster who doesn't even support InnoDB, but if you really must, you can try to replace the storage engine in this file

There should be 4 occurrences

Thank you, I will try it. For me, such a hosted is not an option either, but in this case the client had the hosting package already before I even started, so I will have to deal with this somehow...
