Can I Use the Berkeley Database Engine With My MySQL Database?

Last Updated: November 14, 2006 3:58 PM

You may use the Berkeley DB (BDB) storage engine in MySQL, however it is no longer supported or installed by default in their certified binaries. As a result, we will no longer be offering support for the BDB storage engine.

We advise that all customers convert their BDB tables to InnoDB.

Example:

ALTER TABLE your_bdb_table TYPE=INNODB;
