  • [Suite] Default database collation is latin1_swedish_ci?

    I have just installed my suite, and without creating any db, the install process has created it using latin1_swedish_ci.
    I am Italian, so I don't know if it is the right choice for me, but, I really don't know.

    Can I keep the latin1_swedish_ci or should I change it?

    The server detemines the default collation. I would leave it the way it is unless you have a specific problem.

      afaik, vbulletin is always installed with latin1_swedish_ci. Nothing to do with my server, as everything else is utf8 as it should be.

      I went through a lot to install vbulletin in utf8.

      galerio, if you'd prefer utf8, I can put together my resources for you.

        Thanks, but I have already found a thread where it is explained how to install vb with utf8 db. Anyway, I have installed with default latin1 collation, I don't want to cheange too much the default vb.
        I have already imported my phpbb3 forum that has a utf8 database, and all goes fine. Now I have only to test the interation with wordpress (that is utf8 too).
