MYSQL_SET_CHARSET(3) 1 MYSQL_SET_CHARSET(3)mysql_set_charset - Sets the client character setSYNOPSIS
This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should
be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:
charset to the connection string, such as charset=utf8
bool mysql_set_charset (string $charset, [resource $link_identifier = NULL])
Sets the default character set for the current connection.
- A valid character set name.
link_identifier -The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect(3) is
assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect(3) was called with no arguments. If no connection
is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
This function requires MySQL 5.0.7 or later.
This is the preferred way to change the charset. Using mysql_query(3) to set it (such as SET NAMES utf8) is not recommended. See
the MySQL character set concepts section for more information.

A few weeks ago at the recommendation of people I trust, I bought and started reading Kernighan and Ritchie's (K&R) C Programming Language.

Exactly like my title says.
I am learning PHP and MySQL and I used to use /var/www/ to host (contain or store) my files (.htm/.php) for testing. I could configure, finally, apache2 to use ~/public_html instead.
