[resolved] UTF but characters garbled after upgrade/downgrade (3 posts)

    I've just upgraded mine to 2.3, however after the upgrade, I've seen the errors reported here, and my Japanese entries got garbled although it shows correctly on phpmyadmin.

    So I deleted the files from my server and deleted tables from database then imported the saved data.

    Next I downloaded 2.2.3 and followed the upgrade process, however, I still am having garbled character problems.

    What could be the possible problem?

    If you upgraded from a version before 2.2 then you might need to add these lines to your wp-config.php file:

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

    See Editing wp-config.php for more info.

    Thanks Michael. It's been resolved.
