Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: can .LRN support MYSQL database?

Posted by Roberto Mello on
As Don said: "With the original MySQL backend, atomicity at the statement level was not guaranteed."

The original (and default) MySQL backend is the MyISAM table type. With MyISAM there is no atomicity guarantee whatsoever. There's a utility that tries to repair broken databases with MyISAM.

You only have some atomicity with the InnoDB and BDB table types.
