MySQL default-character-set=utf8


We have a TeamCity 5.1.4 instance configured with a MySQL database.

We would like to use the same MySQL server instance to host a FishEye/Crucible database, however the instructions for this state that we must add 'default-character-set=utf8' to the my.cnf to ensure 'Server Characteristics' and 'Db Characteristics' are both 'utf8'.

Currently, mysql status reports the following...

mysql> status
mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.67, for suse-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.2

Connection id:          231
Current database:
Current user:           devtools@localhost
SSL:                    Not in use
Current pager:          less
Using outfile:          ''
Using delimiter:        ;
Server version:         5.0.67 SUSE MySQL RPM
Protocol version:       10
Connection:             Localhost via UNIX socket
Server characterset:    latin1
Db     characterset:    latin1

Client characterset:    latin1
Conn.  characterset:    latin1
UNIX socket:            /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
Uptime:                 39 days 18 hours 37 min 46 sec

Please can you confirm that this change will not cause an issue for TeamCity.
