I just moved my 0.9.1 site from one server to another. Once the migration was complete, all my Japanese posts and categories became unreadable ??? marks.
I cannot write new posts to the blog in Japanese using b2--all unreadable.
On the previous server I did not have this problem.
In the database, all the tables are set to utf-8. My Japanese b2 install is also set to utf-8 and user is set to Japanese locale. The default charset is utf-8 and I have utf-8 doctype in all my skins.
I can write directly to the MySQL using PhpMyAdmin and writing in Japanese to the posts table. Obvously this is an inconvient way to create posts. I cannot post via b2 -- becomes unreadable. English is ok.
Here is my MySQL version is 4.1.12.
PHP Version 4.3.9
Apache Version Apache/2.0.52 (CentOS)
The server is running CentOS and Plesk 8.0 control panel.
