Hi ranchers. As you know, Mysql 4.0.4 use ISO-8859-1 charset by default. I want to change this attribute, and I have read Mysql docs and find the following: //****** To change the default set, use the --with-charset option shell> ./configure --with-charset=CHARSET //****** ok, but I am using WinXP, and I have installed Mysql in the dir "F:\MySQL" so please tell how to deal with this command using WinXP. (I mean, please give the right command for windows).
The ./configure stuff is usually done when you build something from source code on a unix/linux system. So it could be that you will have to do that somehow on your windows system. On the other hand I just found this. It looks as if you can change the default character set when you start the server. [ February 18, 2004: Message edited by: Barry Gaunt ]
