mariadb-convert-table-format − convert tables to use a given storage engine (mysql_convert_table_format is now a symlink to mariadb-convert-table-format)
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::MariaDB Perl modules be installed (see Section 2.15, “Perl Installation Notes”).
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.
Display a help message and exit.
Continue even if errors occur.
Connect to the MariaDB server on the given host.
The password to use when connecting to the server. Note that the password value is not optional for this option, unlike for other MariaDB programs.
Specifying a password on the command line should be considered insecure. You can use an option file to avoid giving the password on the command line.
The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.
For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.
Specify the storage engine that the tables should be converted to use. The default is MyISAM if this option is not given.
