  • If upgrading, delete these two lines from your wp-config.php file:

    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    converting a mySQL db from iso-latin to utf-8 encoding seems to be a little bit tricky. You have to convert your text fields to “BLOB” Fields in mySQL.

    For Details see the mySQL manual.

    Many tanks Michael & ivli705 for your help,
    I removed 2 rows mentioned in Michael post and it works fine
    with persian encoding. I did not test to restore db
    I have quite tough times with encoding trouble
