database character collation ?

  • I’m in the middle of installing this, but I need the “database character collation”

    What is that and where do I find it?

    I created the database before installation, but I never heard of the “character collation value” and I’ve installed a lot of scripts.

    I use cpanel if that makes a difference.

    You don’t normally need to set anything there. The installation will continue fine without it.

    Every MySQL database uses character collation, but it’s normally hidden from sight. For my bbPress installation, the collation is utf8_general_ci. But I didn’t have to set it, it’s already there. In a unique situation you might need to set it, but I’ve never messed with it.

    I got it figured out and it’s installed.
