Problems with character set after upgrade

    Hi,

    I’ve just tested an upgrade of my bbPress 0.8.2.1 forum. The upgrade goes to bbPress 0.9.0.4, but after the upgrade has finished and the upgrade/installation script has asked, and been given permission, to upgrade the database, it seems like theres some problems with special characters. The forum is in danish, and therefore æ, ø and å is very common, but after the upgrade they just show up as their respective UTF8 codes. I can’t figure out, and but the header and my browser is set to UTF8.

    I can tell, that the forum was and still are in UTF8, but the collation on the database tables is latin1_swedish_ci

    Anyone with an idea of the problem?

  • Are you using a shared DB with WordPress and, if so, did you happen to use Fantastico or some other installer app to install it?

    I’ve seen that (latin1_swedish_ci) borking recently with a weird WP install, but not with BBPress.

    Nope, it’s not shared or anything.. but it seems like being a problem between what character set of data bbPress thinks it getting and what it actually get. I’ll try working on it, and see what happends..

    I’ve solved the problem, by defining charset as latin1_swedish_ci and collate as utf8, even though I would been it should have been the other way around – or am I wrong?

    Those settings are wrong. The charset and collation should match what your DB actually is.

    Hi again,

    Very strange – it worked for a while, and then broke completly down. I then deleted the database-copy, made a new copy and installed bbPress again, and now it works, with the correct settings. As far as for now, I can’t say anything about what went wrong. But thanks for your replies!
