Subject:Disabling storage engines without recompiles (at start)?
View as plain text  
OK I tried over on the general/users list and received no response further 
poking around and I'm either stupid or there really isn't a generic way to 
disable engines one doesn't want without recompiling.  It seems only InnoDB 
and BDB have the ability to be disabled at startup.

Is anyone planning on enhancing the engine system so there's some sort of 
generic way to atleast disable an engine via startup configuration?  It 
would be helpful in hosted environments to be able to selectively turn off 
engines we don't want customers to use without having to build custom 
packages with it permanently disabled.

into trouble of all kinds."
