Can't Change Character Set Cant change character set

Recommended Posts

I want to use a different character set to allow my database to be used in Russian.Doing SHOW VARIABLES shows the character set koi8_ru is included. I tried to create a table using this but failed. I then tried an experiment and copied the following from the MYSQL online manual:CREATE DATABASE abcd CHARACTER SET latin1This also failed and gave me an error. I've tried every combination of quote marks and capitals and nothing works. Anyone any ideas?
