Jira issue originally created by user harikt:
I was working with symfony command line and created the database with the app/console doctrine:create:database
Though the characterset I specified was UTF-8 , it created Latin character set .
@elliot was right too, the create database is not using any character set https://github.com/doctrine/dbal/blob/master/lib/Doctrine/DBAL/Platforms/MySqlPlatform.php#L328
You can see the issue created at symfony/symfony#2044 and later Fabien confirmed the bug is related to Doctrine .
I am not sure its a Bug or a feature I am asking .
Comment created by @beberlei:
Yes these are not connected, however we changed the default collation to UTF-8 for DBAL 2.3
Issue was closed with resolution "Fixed"
Comment created by ivan1986:
