Using symfony2 command doctrine:schema:create the tables and Varchar fields are Collate/Charset are not inherited from database. I changed MySQL defaults to latin1/latin1_general_ci; The doctrine:database:create works; but tables and fields don't. So I found there is a code on MySqlPlataform.php:

if ( ! isset($options['charset']))

{ $options['charset'] = 'utf8'; }

if ( ! isset($options['collate']))

{ $options['collate'] = 'utf8_unicode_ci'; }

$query .= 'DEFAULT CHARACTER SET ' . $options['charset'];
$query .= ' COLLATE ' . $options['collate'];

So if you don't pass collate and charset as entity options, it will put utf8 and utf8_unicode_ci instead of dabatase default charset.

My suggestion is to change a little bit to:

if (isset($options['charset']))

{ $query .= 'DEFAULT CHARACTER SET ' . $options['charset']; }

if (isset($options['collate']))

{ $query .= ' COLLATE ' . $options['collate']; }

If we change it, then it will be like before and users disliked that very much. The decision is to use UTF-8 as default and everybody else has to change the information instead of the other way around.

zend frame work 1.10 with doctrine orm 2 and dbal


i searched a lot for this

there is no way to set the collate of table fields to for ex. utf8_persian_ci in doctrine settings

Comment by Benjamin Eberlei [ 13/Jul/11 ]

This is not a supported feature, if you set the collation in the CREATE DATABASE statement this will inherit to all fields automatically.

Comment by William Knak [ 12/Nov/12 ]

Actually Doctrine 2.3.0 does not allow inheritance. Please look at Issue #DDC-2139 . At least, if there's an option to set a global default collation (wich I didn't find), the problem will occurs every time a table of string/varchar field was created by Symfony2 Doctrine Command.
