Connection Character Set MySQLi

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


  i am using PHP5 with the mbstring extensions, and have it set to
internally use UTF-8 (with all the usual worries about which functions will
correctly work with UTF, etc ...).  I have also set up my MySQL database(s)
to store data in UTF-8 format as well.  Finally, I save my PHP scripts in
UTF format, so that any string literals are, indeed, UTF-8.

  so, the question is:  Why is it that when I ask for the
character_set_name() in MySQLi, it's always latin1_swedish_ci ... ?

  Is this a problem at all, or should I just not worry about it?  Is there
any way to set it to what i want?  I can't seem to find any info in the
online manual, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's not there....

  any thoughts?
