Hello

I am about to convert a database from MyISAM to InnoDB and I was advised by someone that there might be 'structural issues' to resolve first. However that was all they said! Do you know what kind to structural issues could prevent a database from being converted from MyISAM to InnoDB. I am aware that InnDB doesn't support fulltext searches before 5.6 so fulltext fields could be a 'structural' issue in one sense, but I am presuming any schema can be converted from MyISAM to InnoDB.

Many thanks
