I just installed modx 1.0.2 on my fatcow hosting account using these settings with the exception that I choose "SET NAMES" and left it on "utf-8_general" (what ever it is when the page loads) without a problem all seems to be working correctly. Hope this helps someone.]]>

Since you’re sort of locked into UTF8, did you make sure that’s what is set in manager/includes/config.inc.php before installing?
Let’s just say that modifying the config.inc.php file didn’t leap to mind. Wasn’t it suppose to be blank before installing?

I was having a problem where the web site would every so often throw a series of errors:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
« MODx Parse Error »
MODx encountered the following error while attempting to parse the requested resource:
« PHP Parse Error »

PHP error debug
Error: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Unknown MySQL server host ’ddisney.fatcowmysql.com’ (1)

The fatcow tech support came back with:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
A space was there in the database name in the config.inc.php and has been corrected. Please check your site functioning again.

I haven’t had the problem since. Here is some of the current config.inc.php file:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
$database_connection_charset = ’latin1’;
$database_connection_method = ’SET CHARACTER SET’;

That looks very good. The only thing I noticed is that not all users will be using latin1_swedish_ci (though many are).
That is the only choice on fatcow.com
That’s surprising. I’ve never seen a host that restricts the character set of the MySQL dB. Do you have Import capability in PhpMyAdmin? If so, I wonder what happens when you import an SQL dump with UTF-8 specified internally. And can’t you specify the character set when you create the database in PhpMyAdmin -- or does fatcow create it for you?
The first time you create a MySQL database, all you can specify are the Database Name, the Database Login and the Password. No character set. After that, I can go to the MySQLAdmin page. When I do so, the MySQL Charset value is UTF-8 Unicode (utf8) and the MySQL connection collation value is utf8_unicode_ci. When I look at my tables, the collation of all the VARCHAR columns is latin1_swedish_ci.

Sometimes when I go to my website, I get "Unknown MySQL server host" errors. I am go to reinstall using "SET NAMES" to see if that solves the problem.]]>
