Moodle 2.0 - UTF-8 conversion
These instructions successfully addressed installing Moodle 1.9.x on 1and1. When installing Moodle 2.x on 1and1 from scratch it hangs while trying to verify the DB is in Unicode UTF-8 format, which it is. Can 2.0 be installed on 1and1?
I found this in the forum, and it worked perfect for me on 1and1.
Run this MySQL query....
ALTER DATABASE yourdatabase DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;
