    MediaWiki - Database character set?

    Hi,

    I am installing MediaWiki to test with. What type of Database character set do you recommend i have the following options:

    • MySQL 4.1/5.0 binary
    • MySQL 4.1/5.0 UTF-8
    • MySQL 4.0 backwards-compatible UTF-8


    Thanks

    Backwards-compatible UTF-8 seems to be quite common amongst tutorials on hosts websites, after a quick Google.

    That's because most tutorials are years old and if you're still using MySQL 4, you have larger problems. 5.0/utf-8 should be your choice.
