AGONY will be mine if I run Tiki with other than utf8! Excellent! Tiki installation program says UGLY next to the character encoding for my DB, so I am all queued up to make a replacement. So which utf8?
The choices are many.
Now, you might think I should just know which to pick but considering that for a long time the correct pick was Swedish Latin, which made no sense to me, how can I know which of these to pick?
Related... I thought utf8 is unicode. So why are only two of these named unicode. That looks like the others must not be unicode.
Not really for this forum but I do want to know: if utf8 is the thing to run, what is going on with WordPress, running mb4? Or is that utf8mb4? The only thing I know for sure is that in the last 10 years, only one of more than 1,000 databases I have worked with gave me a problem when I read the data from the database using php and mysql, and that one is WordPress database using UTF8, but a different UTF8 than what I was needing I guess.
I have every faith that using utf8 for tiki is going to save agony. I think tiki software is great.
Thank you for your assistance on making sure I don’t foul it up with the wrong character encoding.
