Text became Jibrish after moving hosting

  • Hi peoples.

    I translated my bbpress to Heberw. Recently I moved a host (from goDaddy to site5, if you are curious).

    and moved my Db from one to the other.

    I used the wp-backup plugin to create the SQL, and imported it using the phpMyAdmin at site5.

    After some games it worked fine with my blog:

    but the forum’s text is all question marks:

    Any ideas as to what to do ?

    What games did you play with the blog to get it to appear correctly, and why would it be different than what you need to do for bbPress?

    Is it possibly a collation or character set issue with MySQL? Can you look in the database and see how the characters are stored (with something like phpMyAdmin.

    Also, look at the dump you have from the old database and make sure the characters are present there, first.

    Try to add some static text to see if this is only related to database content or not
