I’ve been having lots of problems with setting up a new WordPress installation. The problem is that i want to switch to utf-8 for character encoding. Unfortunately, most of my MySQL database is latin-1 encoded, so i needed to convert my existing posts.
I found a GNU utility called iconv which can transform encodings, unfortunately it was only then that i found out that some parts of my postings are encoding in latin-1, and some others are already encoded in utf-8. This might be because i switched from another webhost who probably had another default encoding.
I’m getting scared of the thought that i have to go manually over all of my 300 postings to restore any problems with weird characters, so please, if anyone has any suggestions to solve this problem it would make me very happy.
