Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes

On some MySQL installations you may run into this error on module installation:

Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes

This is a known bug within MySQL: https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=4541

To resolve please make sure your installation defaults to using InnoDb as the default storage engine:

set GLOBAL storage_engine='InnoDb';

Or for MySQL 5.6 and above:

SET GLOBAL default_storage_engine = 'InnoDB';

In future versions of the WHMCS Module Shop Module we will endeavour to prevent this error from occurring at all.

UPDATE: This issue has been resolved in version 1.0.1
