XF 1.5 Converting all tables to MyISAM Engine

Hello Everyone,

Does converting all tables to MyISAM have any negative impact on xenforo functionality?

I know that the InnoDB has some performance advantages over MyISAM, but i need to know regardless of the performance and speed, is there any major problem to use MyISAM for all tables or not?

Major problems? No.

But I would strongly dissuade you from making a change like this. Aside from the fact that MyISAM is just not a great storage engine, XF is developed using InnoDB so that's what's expected.
