  • In the field Database choose the database to be supported by the system.

    Important: If the product is installed jointly with the package Bitrix Web environment, the MySQL version of the product will be available and Database selection will not be available.

For the MySQL database, UTF-8 encoding is available. In order to connect the UTF-8 encoding check the box Install in UTF-8 encoding.

Site Encoding

The product may be installed using UTF-8 encoding by checking the relevant box.

UTF-8 (Unicode Transformation Format) is a common encoding that represents every character in the Unicode character set compatible with 8-bit text encoding.

Currently, the choice for HTML-document encoding is between WIN-1251 and UTF-8.

The use of WIN-1251 encoding is recommended for earlier versions of MySQL (up to version 4.x) which malfunctioned with UTF-8. Modern versions of the MySQL database are free of these deficiencies.

The advantage of UTF-8 is the availability of a large number of special characters, typographic symbols, and extended characters. UTF-8 is supported by all modern browsers, starting from Internet Explorer 4.

In order to achieve the maximum flexibility and amplitude of use of the existing characters, the use of UTF-8 encoding is recommended.
