Does SMF 1.1.11 support MySQL Innodb engine?

We have an old forum running SMF version 1.1.11 and there is a need to upgrade the database tables to type INNODB. I'd like to ask:
1. Is that feasible?
2. Has anyone tried it?
3. Is there a test suite available that I can use to test the forum after altering the tables?

If it is not recommended to do so:
4. What would be your suggestion?
5. What would be the recommended upgrade path?

Thanks so much!


It does check out https://simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=131335.0

I would upgrade to SMF 2.0.x as soon as possible. As you have security issues and using old PHP versions.

2.0 also brings better performance along with it, as it is better suited for more modern server setups and has a built in filecache to carry some of the load placed on your database.
