I've got a MySQL problem. My whole website except my database is in UTF8. I just recently tried to convert it to UTF8 with all kind of commands, but the main issue is still there:
the accents don't work. Instead of é, I've got Ã©. Same for è, there is another type of weird character.
Is there an easy to convert all these charaters, let's say Ã©, to é, in the base?
THanks a lot.
(by the way, the database is in latin1)
In this case,
é interpreted as LATIN1 and converted to UTF-8. It might be that your database is trying to be helpful and converts to UTF-8 where no conversion is required.
Have you tried switching the character set on your database tables?
