UTF-8 configuration for MySQL

 10:16 pm on Jul 22, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hi, my db tables are UTF-8, but since i had problems retrieving some characters I added this piece of code to the header include of my API:

$cnn->execute('SET NAMES utf8');
$cnn->execute('SET CHARACTER SET utf8');

What should i do to the apache/php/mysql configuration in order to avoid those lines each time a user does a request?

Have you set this

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

I think this can overcome the problem
