|MySQL specific: $wgDBTableOptions|
|MySQL table options to use during installation or update.
|Introduced in version:||1.10.0 (r21466)|
|Removed in version:||still in use|
|Default value:||'ENGINE=InnoDB, DEFAULT CHARSET=binary'|
MySQL table options to use during installation or update. $wgDBTableOptions will be set in the LocalSettings.php file generated by the installer. You can choose one of the following options resulting in the according values:
- MySQL binary
- ENGINE=InnoDB, DEFAULT CHARSET=binary
- MySQL UTF-8
- ENGINE=InnoDB, DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8
- MySQL 4.0 backwards-compatible UTF-8
No matter which value is selected here, internally MediaWiki always produces data in UTF-8 encoding to be saved in the database, so that a conversion is never needed. Since binary charsets prevent MySQL from doing charset conversions, which otherwise might take place, but are unnecessary, the advised value is "ENGINE=InnoDB, DEFAULT CHARSET=binary".
