MysqlRequirement ================ With this plugin you can ensure that the version and encoding of the MySQL server that your Rails application connects to are correct and abort otherwise when the server starts up. The plugin provides a method for you to invoke at the end of your config/environment.rb file to ensure that the database encoding (charset) of your MySQL database is set properly. If the database encoding/charset of your MySQL server, connection, and client don't all correspond to the encoding that you require then the server will abort with an informative error message. There is some background in this post: http://www.marklunds.com/articles/one/337 Install the plugin with: ruby script/plugin install http://svn.marklunds.com/plugins/require_mysql_encoding Thanks to the Advanced Pragmatic Rails Studio and the Pragmatic Programmers for the original source code and to Mike Clark for letting me share the code. Example ======= If you are on Rails 2, add the file config/initializers/mysql_requirement.rb, or on an earlier version of Rails, stick the lines in config/environment.rb: MysqlRequirement.require do |req| req.encoding req.version /^5/ req.c_driver req.sql_mode "TRADITIONAL" end That will make sure MySQL is configured for UTF8, is version 5.x, and uses the C driver in production.
