Prior to executing a clean install of Zikula, an empty MySQL database might already be set to the desired collation "utf8_unicode_ci". However, during the install process, the tables always get created to the collation "utf8_general_ci", when it might be desired to set the collation to "utf8_unicode_ci" instead.
what is the desired collation? utf8_unicode_ci or utf8_general_ci
We've always been using utf8_general_ci
I think this not a bug. For me it looks like everything is working like it is supposed.
I think it is features request, to support other collations. @shefik Or did I understood you wrong?
Is there a reason why we should support other collations next to utf8_general_ci?
I think the issue if you must create the database manually, and it should be created as UTF8. I also do not believe this is a bug.
