Convert database to UTF-8 (2 posts)

    My Problem is very likly identical to this old one:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/117955?replies=39

    But I am using wp 2.8.3 and have updated from wp 2.1.x to 2.3.3
    without ever changing the encoding and now want to import into 2.8.3.

    This results in wrong encodings everywhere, since WP saved utf8 in latin1 tables and now displays latin1-saved utf8 as utf8, which results in always two wrong digits for a single utf8 character.

    Unfortanetely this is a problem created by WP itsself and I could not find any solution so far.

    I tried
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Converting_Database_Character_Sets

    but this gives me the sql error:

    SQL-Befehl:
    ALTER TABLE wp_1posts MODIFY post_name varbinary( 200 ) ;

    MySQL meldet:
    #1283 - Column 'post_name' cannot be part of FULLTEXT index
