Description Huji 2008-04-02 00:04:24 UTC
Some of the sql statements (like maintenance/tables.sql or extensins/Oversight/hidden.sql) are using TYPE attribute; this throws a notice on most recent versions of MySQL:

'TYPE=storage_engine' is deprecated; use 'ENGINE=storage_engine' instead

Is there a reason for not using ENGINE instead of TYPE?
Comment 1 Robert Leverington 2008-04-02 10:28:28 UTC
Is "ENGINE" available in MySQL 4.0? We currently support back to that version (it is indeed the one running on Wikimedia) and there currently is no reason to upgrade; even though there would be more features, performance would be significantly reduced.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-04-02 17:56:31 UTC
ENGINE is not available in some older versions of MySQL 4.0.

Currently, we use ENGINE for the MySQL 5 schema modes and TYPE for the MySQL 4 schema mode. (You can see this in the installer, where it sets up $wgDBTableOptions.)
