Description of problem:
Describe how to change MySQL character set for the session.

Bug 1010582 describes how to change MySQL instance's character set with action hooks, application configurations, etc.
Comment 3 Luke Meyer 2014-02-24 09:05:59 EST
It's a request for enhancement/clarification. And yes, I'd say it's legitimate; it's an instance where using something (MySQL) under OpenShift is not as straightforward as people are used to when running it independently and having full control over the configuration. Our answer in this case seems to be that really, it's something your DB client usage should specify anyway. Although it's possible to specify the setting globally in a git action hook, that doesn't seem like a good recommendation to make.

I'm not sure at this time where exactly in the user guide this should go. If there's a section for MySQL-specific notes, then some mention of the the need for the client to specify character set, with a reference to bug 1010582 would be a good addition.
