Collation tool doubt before use

Post by acastrolorenzo » 04 Mar 2011, 13:24

Hi everyone,

I have a Joomla 1.5 site wich is created with a latin1_swedish_ci configuration.

I need to write japanese and chinese characters, so I cant.

Can I solve the problem with your tool?, Im a noob sorry :x

Lots of thanks in advance!

Hi, I think yes, I have changed my content in database for the Czech site (specific diacritics) from the latin1_swedish_ci ... but there are many different parts which can be problematic in this area (other server settings, other database settings, etc.) so you never know, this must be checked but before of course the backup of database needs to be done:
