Cara konversi charset database MySQL

Kalau pernah menemukan ada CMS yang mensyaratkan agar database MySQLnya menggunakan character set tertentu dan kasusnya sudah secara default pakai latin1_swedish_ci seperti yang saya alami. Maka cara paling mudahnya adalah membuat database baru dengan nama yang lain, atau yang lama dihapus dan dibuat baru lagi.

Alternatifnya anda bisa mengkonversi charset yang digunakan dan ini caranya sendiri sangatlah mudah, tapi tetap saya sarankan anda membackup dulu databasenya untuk berjaga – jaga.

Intinya tinggal anda eksekusi query SQL berikut:

ALTER DATABASE nama_db CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;

Dimana saya mengganti charset databasenya ke utf8 dengan collation utf8_unicode_ci.

Kalau anda butuh daftar character set dan collation yang tersedia pada MySQL/MariaDB/Percona server yang terinstall bisa dilihat disini:

SHOW character set;
