Vtiger CRM 6.x attempts to create database with utf8. This could also be
set default in MySQL configuration.

> Hi everyone,
> What is the best practice configuration for mySql for vTiger (6.4, while
> waiting for 6.5 ;-)), when we need different kinds of characters?
> Ie. both northeren europen øæåöä, german ßü, russian телефон, etc.
> I can see that the current db is latin1_swedish_ci which was good with the
> northern european characters, but fails with the russian ones upon CSV
> import, where characters are converted into "?????" instead.
> I've of course checked that the csv was exported in a way where it does
> contain the proper characters.
> Should it be "utf8_general_ci" or what?
> Thanks!
