+.. note::
+    Ensure the database server defined in the settings files is properly
+    configured and running, and that your selected database is using UTF-8.

+        CREATE DATABASE db_name DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
 Once you're done configuring, run inside the project directory::
     ./ syncdb
