Jira issue originally created by user harikt:

Hi Guys,

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

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"
