    Re: UTF-8 problem when migrating data Link to this post

    Hi mattclegg,

    YES, but the solution was very weird!

    I had to manually convert the exported database dump:
    iconv --from-code UTF-8 --to-code ms-ansi -c usr_web46_1.sql > ms-ansi.txt

    Then I could import the file "ms-ansi.txt" using phpMyadmin on the new server.

    No idea why this worked???

    Best regards,
    Volker

    Hi kurthv,

    thank you a lot for posting your solution. It saved my evening while converting a site from SS 2.3.3 to 3.1.2.

    I hope Umlauts are more robust now...

    Cheers, wmk
