MYSQL_CONVERT_TABLE_FORMAT(1)MySQL Database SysteMYSQL_CONVERT_TABLE_FORMAT(1)

NAME
       mysql_convert_table_format - convert tables to use a given storage
       engine

SYNOPSIS
       mysql_convert_table_format [options] db_name

DESCRIPTION
	   Note
	   This	utility	is deprecated in MySQL 5.6.17 and removed in MySQL 5.7

       mysql_convert_table_format converts the tables in a database to use a
       particular storage engine (MyISAM by default).
       mysql_convert_table_format is written in	Perl and requires that the DBI
       and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed	(see Section 2.13, "Perl
       Installation Notes").

       Invoke mysql_convert_table_format like this:

	   shell> mysql_convert_table_format [options]db_name

       The db_name argument indicates the database containing the tables to be
       converted.

       mysql_convert_table_format supports the options described in the
       following list.

       o   --help Display a help message and exit.

       o   --force Continue even if errors occur.

       o   --host=host_name Connect to the MySQL server	on the given host.

       o   --password=password The password to use when	connecting to the
	   server. The password	value is not optional for this option, unlike
	   for other MySQL programs.

	   Specifying a	password on the	command	line should be considered
	   insecure. To	avoid giving the password on the command line, use an
	   option file.	See Section 6.1.2.1, "End-User Guidelines for Password
	   Security".

       o   --port=port_num The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

       o   --socket=path For connections to localhost, the Unix	socket file to
	   use.

       o   --type=engine_name Specify the storage engine that the tables
	   should be converted to use. The default is MyISAM if	this option is
	   not given.

       o   --user=user_name The	MySQL user name	to use when connecting to the
	   server.

       o   --verbose Verbose mode. Print more information about	what the
	   program does.

       o   --version Display version information and exit.
