Re: Need utf-8

MySQL 4.0 does not support UTF-8. There is no file that someone can send you that will make it work.

You can, however, simple store UTF-8 data in a column that stores string data (VARCHAR, TEXT, etc). Because MySQL 4.0 does not understand UTF-8, things like full-text search will not handle the UTF-8 data as well as MySQL 4.1 (which does support UTF-8) will, but the data can be stored and retrieved safely.
