Magento 1.7 can not be installed with MySQL 5.6 due to the lack of InnoDB storage engine

Thursday, 9 May 2013

Recently while we were installing a clean copy of Magento 1.7 community version into one of our clients server, we found error occurs and the installation could not be finished. The error message is "Database server does not support the InnoDB storage engine". So we digged this a little bit and found due to the changes of MySQL 5.6, InnoDB storage engine is no longer supported. People are also complaining about this issue on Magento forum as you can see here.
