    New installs of vBulletin 5 should use UTF-8. What you're seeing in the browser address bar is something completely different and we don't have much control over it.

    If you're importing/upgrading then you will be using whatever character set and database table structure you were before. Your database should be converted to UTF-8 before upgrading.

        Same problem here. My old database is utf8_general_ci, tables are utf8_general_ci, fields are utf8_general_ci and the connection is utf8_general_ci. In the config file, mysqli connection is set to utf8.

        The problem is in VB5, not in database !
