Problem with greek characters

Post by pswapnil1987 » Wed Nov 03, 2010 8:30 am

Hi,

I am converting my greek website from Joomla 1.0 to Joomla 1.5. The problem I am facing is I am not able to retrieve greek characters back.

These characters were stored as Γενική ΠαρουσίασΠin old Joomla database(collation: latin1_swedish_ci)· Joomla 1.0 was able to convert it back to original Greek fonts.

Now collation of my new database is utf8_general_ci. I have migrated Joomla 1.0 database to Joomla 1.5 by using mtwmigrator. The data got transferred correctly but Joomla 1.5 shows this data as it is (without converting it back to greek fonts). I have installed greek language pack also but still the problem remains same.

I think, somehow, this old data needs to be converted into new UTF-8 format.


Please help.

You'll need to open the database extract of J 1.0 as utf8 with Word, then save as western european.
