    I have upgraded to this latest version of MySQL 5.5.32, but it standard creates InnoDB based tables and to be compatible with some software I run I would like it to create a new DB with MyISAM tables.

    How to do this?

    Put this in your /etc/my.cnf -- replacing any pre-existing one that might be setting InnoDB as default

    default-storage-engine=MyISAM

    Then do a /scripts/restartsrv_mysql
