Convert WP Database to UTF-8

Converts the WordPress database (both tables and columns) to UTF-8 character set.

What's happening "behind the scene"?

  1. Change tables: ALTER TABLE $table DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci
  2. Change columns: ALTER TABLE $table CHANGE $field_name $field_name $field_type CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci

What about the WP version?

As you've seen, only MySQL and PHP are required. Roughly speaking, it has nothing to do with WordPress, so you can use almost any version of WordPress.

Requires: 2.0.2 or higher
Compatible up to: 2.8
