  • Hello,

    As I can’t understand russian yet (but work with russian text contents on MODx), maybe you already solved my problem in previous posts.

    I worked perfectly with russian contents on my laptop with a local installation of MODx.

    When moved to the final online server all cyrillic characters display like this : huh??

    The data base encoding seems to be set exactly like my local data base.

    Do you have any clue ?

    Thanks a lot,

    Greg
    • check these:
      - double check the db connection collation first.
      - set the site/manager encode to your language default charset.
      - open the config.inc.php file under manager\includes to see whether it uses the right configuration for db.
      FYI:
      $database_connection_charset

      • such problems appear because of double conversion

        I had the same problem.

        in local host i had denver which had a connection to database in windows 1252

        so every time I upload sql dump to remote server I first reconvert it from windows1252 to utf-8

        in remote server i have collation set to UTF-8

        everything works fine

        here is the reconversion script

        <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
            "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
        
        <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
        
        <head>
          <title>Hello!</title>
        </head>
        
        <body>
        
        <?php
        $input = $_GET['file'];
        print_r('working with'.$input.'<br/><br/>');
        
        
        //$char='z:/charset.txt';
        if (file_exists($input)) {$text=file_get_contents($input);
        
        
        error_reporting(1);
        
        $text=mb_convert_encoding($text,"windows-1252","UTF-8");
        file_put_contents($input.'.sql',$text);
        }
        
        ?>
        
        </body>
        
        </html>
        


        supply it original sql and it will return you converted

        move.php?file=z:\modx_2007-07-30_23-21.sql

        returns z:\modx_2007-07-30_23-21.sql.sql

        first check

          Hello, Mokkacuka!
          What encoding do you use in MODx database? I recommend you to use UTF-8 for multilanguage website.
          If you can understand anything in Russian I solved the problem with encoding in database here http://modxcms.com/forums/index.php/topic,4422.0.html about a year ago. And I have no problems with encoding now.
          Also you need to check default PHP encoding on both servers (local and remote). It should match.
