I have a mySQL database with various tables. For some of them I haven't defined the MAX_ROWS variable and so when many records are inserted it stops accepting more data. I want to alter these tables without deleting them and making them again, because there is data in them which I don't want to lose. How can I add the MAX_ROWS line without destrying everything I have so far?
I use phpMyAdmin 2.2.6

Please help this is urgent...

Hi jonn_g,
You can do it with an 'ALTER TABLE' statement. Don't know how this can be handled in PHPMyAdmin though. The MySQL manual details it. http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/ALTER_TABLE.html
