charset_normalization option

Postby orcalator » Thu May 24, 2012 5:54 am


Can someone explain me what does this option from config (charset_normalization) actually do with country specific characters? I'm having problems (with character encoding) while upgrading OJS because of this option. In database all country specific characters are encoded in some strange way (caused by charset_normalization option). Is there a way to convert database to something normal like utf-8? Thx!
