    Hello,

    I have 24GB RAM i7 dedicated server, running CPanel 11.36 with MySQL 5.1.68. In config file I have innodb_file_per_table enabled. Is it safe to just disable the option, not doing any damage to databases at the same time after MySQL restarts?

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    Per MySQL documentation:

    If you remove the innodb_file_per_table line from my.cnf and restart the server, InnoDB creates tables inside the shared tablespace files again.

    This is documented at:

    MySQL 5.1 - Innodb Multiple Tablespaces

    Thank you.
