MySQL Character Sets
Posted by Pacific Host on 05 December 2011 05:51 AM

Does your MySQL server support extended character sets, foreign character sets, and collation sets? 
At the time of this writing (June 24, 2004), our MySQL servers do not support collation sets yet. Collation sets were introduced into MySQL in MySQL version 4.1.0 and was fully implemented in MySQL version 4.1.1.

If you already have an account with us, please check your control panel. In the control panel's left-hand side of the page, there should be a MySQL version for your server. If the version is less than 4.1.0 (if the version is 4.0.15, for example), than the server doesn't support collation sets yet.
