Support » Installing WordPress » encoding after upgrading

  • Resolved jland


    When I upgraded wp to 2.2, my Japanese text got scrambled.
    I went back and copy/pasted the original Japanese into the post… but the text is still showing up as ???
    I made new posts with Japanese text, and it’s still ???

    What happened…? And how do I fix this?

  • I read over that, and I checked my wp-config.php.
    it says define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’); exactly like that documentation said.

    The documentation says exactly NOT TO HAVE IF IT IS AN UPGRADE
    There really must be a problem how they teach people to read! Quote:

    Warning for those performing upgrades: If DB_CHARSET and DB_COLLATE do not exist in your wp-config.php file, DO NOT add either definition to your wp-config.php file unless you read and understand Converting Database Character Sets. Adding DB_CHARSET and DB_COLLATE to the wp-config.php file, for an existing blog, can cause problems — as Ryan Boren says, “your queries will go boom!

    oh haha
    I read the “do not add” and I figured I wasn’t adding anything so I skipped over that.

    so are you saying I should delete

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    that’s in my wp-config.php?

    I want some confirmation in case my wp goes kaboom…
