how to modify the settings of the database

Hello, does anyone know how to change the character_set_server property from latin1 to utf8?


I checked the documents on the Internet and found that I need to add the commands for the etc/my[dot]cnf? but how do I access it?



That file is going to be located "above the root" if you are using shared hosting you don't have the ability to make this change. 


It can only be made in a vps/dedicated server environment. 


let me know if you have any questions
