Hi everyone, new to FUDforum after a client introduced it to me. I have tried to install it on Digital Ocean using MySQL 8 managed database, and the installation fails with various errors about not being able to drop tables. After investigating the installation script, the issue is in the table creations, where the installer forces the table to be MyISAM regardless of the default. Commenting this line out of the installer fixed the issue for me.

Is the use of MyISAM required for FUDforum to function correctly, or will the forum perform properly using InnoDB? This is the new default engine for MySQL, and would likely perform better for a high traffic forum as it is designed for more read/write as opposed to MyISAM which I understood to be more high read low write?
