Mysql – Use utf8 for supporting multibyte languags.

October 14, 2010 at 1:31 pm Leave a comment

Some languages such as Chinese will use many bytes to store single character.

Latin1 is the default charset in mysql.

Latin1 won’t support the multibyte characters. i-e if we store the chinese characters in mysql server with the default charset, the characters won’t appear correctly.

So, if we are going to store multibyte characters in mysql database we need to specify the charset as utf8.
