Comprehensive How-To for Enabling the Standard InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB and MySQL

I’m always switching back-and-forth between the 2 different InnoDB flavors in MariaDB – XtraDB+ and the standard InnoDB plugin, so I thought I’d simply post all of the various combinations in a single place. (And then I cover enabling the InnoDB Plugin in MySQL, since it’s an option in 5.1.) [Addition: Thanks to Andrew and Sergei for the tips on shortening plugin-load=. The changes are reflected below.]

Note: Below is for Windows. For Linux, simply change “.dll” to “.so” where appropriate.

MariaDB 10.0:

Do not add anything, as the standard InnoDB plugin is the current default (as of 10.0.3, although I do anticipate this changing in the near future, and I’ll update the post accordingly when that happens).

Remember, in MariaDB 5.5, if you do not “enable” (i.e., add anything to the config file to do so) the InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB 5.5, you’ll end up with XtraDB+ for your InnoDb plugin. However, if you do “enable” the InnoDB plugin, then you end up with the original InnoDB plugin provided by Oracle/InnoDB.

The change is that the plugin file (.dll for Windows, .so file for Linux) which was previously named “ha_innodb_plugin.dll” is now just “ha_innodb.dll”.

Thus, if you previously enabled the plugin with (would have been in a 5.1 instance):

plugin-load=innodb=ha_innodb_plugin.dll;innodb_trx=ha_innodb_plugin.dll; …
