"Unknown character set" during install into database reports successful install.
|Reported by:||MECU||Owned by:||barrykooij|
During editing of the wp-config.php, I changed
Which I thought was valid.
After clicking "Install Wordpress" I got a page full of:
WordPress database error: [Unknown character set: 'utf8_general_ci']
And at the bottom, "Success" with a login prompt, but nothing was actually created in the database.
I think WP shouldn't report a successful install if the user happened to accidentally change this value (or another) during install as it would cause confusion.
I used a svn checked out version of WP on 2010-04-24 on my local computer using PHP5 and apache2, but I think this is really a problem since 2.6 (or when the current install system was implemented).
