    this isn't really a php question..its more of a mysql question.[i think]

    what version of mysql is your server using?
    From doing some reading, it looks like mysql6.0 has added the sinhala character set/collation setting into it. But, I'm not finding any way to actually add that support into an existing mysql5.0/5.1/5.5 version server.

    EDIT: Well, it appears I didn't use the correct search terms.
    This >>LINK<< should hopefully point you in the right direction.

    It appears to me that that language is not supported for phpmyadmin. However, if DonR is correct and you are looking for language support for MySQL then you should have this thread moved to the MySQL forum (click the red triangle in the upper right).
    There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
