Support » Fixing WordPress » umlauts are gone?

  • Hi there,

    I upgraded from 2.3.3 to 2.5.1 and now my umlauts are gone and replaced by funky ASCII code. Any ideas what I can do about that?

    I did backup my database before the upgrade using the Export XML from the 2.3.3 but I did not do a backup from the mysql directly because of size.

  • Found it, in case anyone else does this.

    Something added to wp-config.php DB CHARSET changed, but if you do not know that, they don’t really tell you in the upgrade instructions and it breaks your umlauts and all other foreign characters.

    So, I recommend you do a complete new install and restore your blog.

    That’s that.
