database collation

  • Hi,

    I have installed bbPress on local servers (MAMP / Apache that came with mac) and these installations made database tables with collation of “utf8_general_ci”

    Installed on online server, and this one made database tables with collation of “latin1_swedish_ci”

    Why?

    And more importantly, does it matter?

    Either way, a lot of entries are not going to be in English, so anything in db isn’t human-readable, so if it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter, I guess.

    Though, if there is any way to be able to read non-ascii stuffs in database, I would love to know, please…

    Thanks.
