Contact Fog Creek Support
To help folks adopt FogBugz For Your Server, a few database options are offered including MySQL, although Microsoft SQL Server is the recommended choice. Integration with MySQL was offered before Unicode support was properly available, and as a result, FogBugz had to force the support in MySQL. Unfortunately, this means that the MySQL database uses an odd encoding mechanism and standard database conversion tools will not convert your data properly. If you’re running FogBugz on MySQL and are considering switching to Microsoft SQL Server, please contact us so we can convert your database under a Professional Services contract.
