Strange characters on main site after Multisite setup (2 posts)

    Apologies if this has been covered before. I searched a long time for someone having a similar problem, and found nothing.

    I finally got a Multisite network up and running, and it seemed like everything was working fine. But then I went to our main site and found that some of the characters in the text were being converted into weird characters--for example, all apostrophes are changed to ’.

    The problem went away after I restored my backup wp-config, so the issue was obviously being caused by the lines I added to wp-config during the setup process.

    Is anyone aware of this problem or what might be causing it? Or is there a simple solution?

    Maybe you did some damage in the WP-config.php file on the line that states the charset or maybe the language file?

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    * WordPress Localized Language, defaults to English.
    define ('WPLANG', 'da_DK');
