Add mysql default encoding to server settings
Not sure if it's a bug in the installation script or a feature, but, currently the default charechter encoding is set to NL (if I remember correctly)
It should be set to utf8 general
This has been completed and available in server settings section in console.
Default for me was just US ASCII. Should absolutely be utf-8
Totally agree - it MUST be set to UTF8 by default as this is default practice for quite some time...
my default encoding is swedish :) dont know why, anyways I was able to change it to utf8 unicode

Omri, our default encoding is latin1, which has been working fine so far. What we can do is to add a new option in the server settings tab to control the encoding of mysql from the Click&Go console. I will create an internal ticket for it as it is a good showcase of what can be done with system settings functionality.
I can give you any ETA for implementation.
