I want to install askbot on my shared server. The default db engine of this server is InnoDB and .my.cnf is hidden by administrator. I tried to edit the script of askbot to use MyISAM strictly, but I cannot find where to edit. Thanks.

This stackoverflow post will hopefully help you.

At this time we do not support the "new style" databases settings, use DATABASE_OPTIONS setting instead.

If you own the box, why not make MyIsam default globally across all apps?

Add the following directive to /etc/my.cnf

default-storage-engine = MyISAM

I'm not alone to use this machine.
