How to set the default character .1 user found helpful
Well you could use PHP's
They can also be set in PHP's php.ini and MySQL's my.cnf
Also make sure your mysql database is using the same collation and also that your database tables are using the same character set (you can set those via phpMyAdmin).
if open define('DB_COLLATE', 'utf8_general_ci') will get this error:
