    Hi,

    Im having difficulty with the installation of Magento.
    On the configuration page I am presented with the error message:

    "Database server does not support the InnoDB storage engine"

    Im installing Magento using cPanel on a shared host.

    Does anyone have any idea how to solve this issue.

    Thanks

    You will need to either configure Magento to not use InnoDB for its database tables (if possible), or ask your host if InnoDB can possibly be enabled. Either way, your host should be able to help you with this.

    Congratulations, you've just found your webhosting provider is inadequate to the task of hosting Magento.

    Even if they can enable Innodb, they will not be prepared to give you the resources to run Magento. Especially if this is on a shared host.

    Trying to run Magento as ISAM tables exclusively is long past it's sell-by date and went out with version 1.3.x.x

    For your best future experience with running Magento, you will need to find a host that understands running Magento under a shared environment, unless you intend on having 5000 or more products, then you need to look into VPS/Dedicated hosting.
