I can see that the FRED database (PostgreSQL) is in UTF-8.
Since i am using PHP, and i got some problems with UTF-8, I am considering to change the PostgreSQL database to ISO 8859-1 character set.

question 1)
Is it safe to do this ?
Is there anything i should reconsider before doing this ?

question 2)
And how can i set the character set, if i use the commands below ?:
 fred-dbmanager uninstall
 fred-dbmanager install
