How to make PDO adapter run SET NAMES utf8 each time I connect, In ZendFramework.
I am using an INI file to save the adapter config data. what entries should I add there?

If it wasn't clear, I am looking for the correct syntax to do it in the config.ini file of my project and not in php code, as I regard this part of the configuration code.

Best Solution

fear my google-fu

$pdo = new PDO(
    'mysql:host=mysql.example.com;dbname=example_db',
    "username",
    "password",
    array(PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND => "SET NAMES utf8"));

first hit ;)
