TYPO3 v6 has reached its end-of-life April 18th, 2017 and is not maintained by the community anymore. Looking for a stable version? Use the version switch on the top left.

There is no further ELTS support. It is strongly recommended updating your project.


Character Sets

Current versions of TYPO3 use UTF-8 encoding. You should make sure that MySQL uses UTF-8 as well. This is done most easily by checking that the new, empty database uses the character set UTF-8. In a database with content, all tables and those columns, which have a character set, must use UTF-8.
