Given my limited knowledge on mySQL, that page may as well be written in Greek because I do not understand a word of it.
As a test, I took a database backup from one of his existing s9y sites, and tried importing it into a newly created mysql cluster database and encountered errors relating to the entries table.
ERROR 1214 (HY000): The used table type doesn't support FULLTEXT indexes.
I then encountered subsequent errors because the table was not created.
On the reference pages above, I found:
FULLTEXT indexes. The NDB storage engine does not support FULLTEXT indexes, which are possible for MyISAM tables only.
I believe their intent is to build this thing up so it is very scalable since they really do not know how many sites they will ultimately run from this rack of servers (I think there are 6 servers).
Can anyone tell me what this error message means and what I need to do next?
