MySQL and Tamil

I created a DB in MySQL with latin collation and when I tried to save some Unicode content it go saved as “???” into the DB. Took me a while to figure out the issue. When such problem occures you need to change the collation to UTF-8 as shown in the image below. (navigate to operation -> table options)

Make sure you change the collation in

  • DB
  • Table
  • Check each row in the table if problem still exists
