I've had nothing but problems with my current host. My website is suffering ongoing page load errors and slowness in logging into my dashboard. My host company suggests that this could be a problem with a couple of lines in my database and have asked me to comment them out. However when I open my sql file in notepad, the lines they refer to appear as dashes and squares (------- etc). I've tried changing the font but I can't get to the lines they refer to.
The lines they want me to comment out are:
xxxxxxxxxxx DEFAULT CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci;
1. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
2. Will commenting these lines out help at all?
3. How can I view these lines of code in an editor?
Any help appreciated as I'm losing site visitors due to page load errors and time outs.
