If you have built MySQL from source code and replaced the
built-in InnoDB in MySQL with the InnoDB storage engine in the source tree, you have
a special version of the
that contains the InnoDB storage engine. To “uninstall”
the InnoDB storage engine, you replace this executable with something
that is built from an unmodified MySQL source code
Before shutting down the version of the MySQL server with built-in InnoDB storage engine, you must enable “slow” shutdown:
SET GLOBAL innodb_fast_shutdown=0;
For the details of the shutdown procedure, see the MySQL manual on The Shutdown Process.
