I have a client with a badly messed up server. Does Xenforo care if the table engine is innodb or myisam? right now they are running innodb but i want to change them to myisam and wanted to make sure it would not cause problems with xenforo.

Will it immediately blow up if you change the table type? No. Will not supporting transactions violate assumptions and the design of the code? Absolutely.

I would strongly recommend against migrating to MyISAM. There's no real reason to, provided the my.cnf file has tuning for InnoDB as well as MyISAM.

I went ahead on that assumption that you had developed the database for innodb. Luckily I was able to force repair the tables and do a manual mysql upgrade to recover the system...Thanks..:)
