Godaddy and UTF-8 (3 posts)

    Hello all:

    I've recently *tried* to move my WordPress installation from my old hosting provider to GoDaddy.
    The reason why I chose it, is price of course.

    It was hard to import the DB, but definitely i got it.

    Problem comes because I'd like to use utf-8 instead of iso-8559-1 (like i was doing before).

    I found a script looking in this forum, called 'convert-encoding.php' but it showed errors that didn't appeared in my old hosting.
    I think it's due to the mysql version...

    Anyone knows if mysql40 is not utf-8 compatible?

    If not... Why a new installation of wordpress works wonders with utf-8?

    Thanks you in advantage,

    MySQL 4 is definitely compatible with UTF-8. I've setup numerous blogs on godaddy with it.
