title not supported error - Import mysql database with different character set

Discovered that some databases will provided a "title not supported" error when you import. The cause is because the character set is set by default to "latin1" encoding while your database tables are set to utf-8 encoding.

The solution for this is to set a default encoding when importing the database. To do this by command line do the following:

mysql -uroot --default-character-set='latin1' dbname

I posted a stack exchange thread on this.
