Default how to define charset UTF-8

I've seen many ways of defining and might have created a mix of defining things on php. Can you help me edit thingws together:

PHP Code:
// for display
//header("Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8");
//header("Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8_general_ci");
//define("DSN", "mysql:host=localhost;dbname=biblewheel;charset=utf-8");



/*$pdo = new PDO('mysql:host=hostname;dbname=database', 'username', 'password',

$options = array(PDO::ATTR_PERSISTENT =>true);

$conn = new PDO(DSNUSERNAMEPASSWORD$options);
//array(PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND => "SET NAMES utf-8_general_ci COLLATE utf8"); utf8mb4_bin
    //$conn = new PDO("mysql:host=localhost; dbname=biblewheel;charset=UTF8","root","",array(PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND => "SET NAMES utf8"))or die("no connection"); $conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
//echo "connection successful<br /><br />\n";
}catch (PDOException $ex){
"A database error occurred ".$ex->getMessage();
