1. The database should be collated UTF8.
Not only the db itself, but also the tables and fields !!!

On some hosts, the db is automatically created as Swedish latin.

2 solutions to this:

A. You do NOT have much stuff already saved in your site
Delete the database tables, set the db collation to UTF8, and reinstall.
This can be done via PhpMyAdmin

B. You need to keep what you already entered in the db
You can correct this by using this script.

2. Your host has disabled some PHP functions.

ini_set is very often the issue. Contact your host
