MySQL: UTF-8 Connection support
« on: March 22, 2007, 07:22:25 PM »

I don't know if that has been requested yet. But here it is:

It seems that when a MySQL server is set with the UTF-8 connections (with the "SET NAMES utf8"  SQL command) that, even if all the anope database is set to utf8_bin, it has trouble with accentuated characters. Data containing one of those chars will simply stop displaying.

So my suggestion request is that Anope MySQL supports utf-8 connections better. That way, data can ben entered into the database by anope correctly, and not halted when it hits an accentuated chars.

I think this has already been requested, not sure. Also getting a suitable working mysql codebase is our primary focus for the next devel branch (Anope 1.9)

The current MySQL code is feature locked for 1.8. It's too much of a mess to easily work with. We'll be revisiting this for future versions of anope.
