multiple daemons and character sets

NB. Sorry for the cross-posting, but I sent this to the install forum before discovering this character set specific forum. -S


I am looking for confirmation for my proposed setup.

The task is to create a utf8 mysql server on our machine which already has several databases that are using Latin1 as the default character set. This is on freebsd 4.11.

To avoid tinkering with the existing databases I am thinking of ..

- building a new daemon with the '--with-extra-charsets' configure option including the utf8 set.
- running one instance on one port with the default Latin1 for the old databases.
- running another instance (different port and db dir) with the '--default-character-set=utf8' and '--default-collation=utf8_general_ci' at startup

Am I understanding the documentation correctly? Is what I'm proposing an option?

thanks in advance,
