Hi there
i just installed Nginx and MariaDB 10.1. then installed "mysqltuner" to check upon Mysql if is everything works fine. but mysqltuner Report About InnoDB is odd! first it says InnoDB is install with green, then it says it's enabled but isnt being used!! what does it mean? i check mysql for check if InnoDB is installed or not and it says:
what should i do to active InnoDB?
The result for mysqltuner is this:

General recommendations:
Add skip-innodb to MySQL configuration to disable InnoDB
MySQL started within last 24 hours - recommendations may be inaccurate
Reduce your overall MySQL memory footprint for system stability
Reduce or eliminate unclosed connections and network issues
Set threadcachesize to 4 as a starting value
Variables to adjust:
*** MySQL's maximum memory usage is dangerously high ***
*** Add RAM before increasing MySQL buffer variables ***
querycachetype (=1)
threadcachesize (start at 4)

MySQL supports two types of database storage. MyISAM and InnoDB. This message indicates that while the InnoDB is working it is not being used because your databases are MyISAM.

You can find more information on the type database types here
