MYSQL启动不了提示: Default storage engine (InnoDB) is not available Tags: mysql

自己用的MYSQL都是用MYISAM数据库,还没涉及到需要INNODB,因此打算直接不加载INNODB引擎。
在my.ini(linux下/etc/my.cnf)加上skip-innodb,就可以了。
我这样设置后,在linux下都没问题,今天在我本机winXP启动MYSQL,提示启动不起来。看下mysql目录的错误日志:

090613 10:15:27 [ERROR] Default storage engine (InnoDB) is not available
090613 10:15:27 [ERROR] Aborting

090613 10:15:27 [Note] C:\www\mysql\bin\mysqld-nt: Shutdown complete

估计是上次加了参数后,一直没启动起来。。。已经很久没用本机的mysql了。
查了下,原来my.ini里有一句:default-storage-engine=INNODB,把默认的engine设为INNODB,而我又加了skip-innodb,怪不得启不来了。

将default-storage-engine改为MYISAM,MYSQL启动OK!
在skip-innodb下,data目录下的ibdata1,ib_logfile0,ib_logfile1这三个文件就不需要了,就可以删除。

测试了下,在没加skip-innodb时,删除了这三个文件,启动时会自动创建这三个文件,日志如下:

再删除这三个文件,加了skip-innodb后,启动日志:

那三个文件就不会自动产生了。
