    Zen Cart is a great product, but I'm appalled that is uses MyISAM as the default storage engine! MyISAM should never be used for applications where data integrity is more important than speed. InnoDB is the MySQL engine of choice for high-volume transactional systems. A first year database analyst could tell you that. InnoDB = transactions, row-level locking, foreign keys. This is essentially the same as the default engine in proper enterprise relational DB's - Oracle, SQL Server, DB2.
