OJS Migration - special character issue

Postby thiessenp » Fri Dec 07, 2007 1:14 pm


I'm trying to help migrate a journal from an older version of OJS (not sure which version) to the latest. The old version of OJS doesn't have any problems with special characters (eg. accents on letters), however, when exporting to the latest version of OJS the special characters are lost.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure how similar my post is to the below, if so, just let me know and I'll take it as a server config problem:

Hi Peter,

Could you check docs/README on your old installation to find out what version you're upgrading from?
