  • Startup Warnings on upgrade to 5.2.5.

    Hello

    i just try to upgrade my forum from 5.2.4 to 5.2.5 and i get this warning :

    Startup Warnings
    It is advisable to resolve the following issues prior to continuing with the install. To check that the issues have been resolved, hit "refresh". To continue without resolving the issues, hit "confirm":
    • Your database has a character set of 'utf8', but your mysql connection character set is 'latin1'. This can cause problems when rendering text if you installed your site prior to version 5.2.5. Setting $config['Mysqli']['charset'] to 'latin1' in your configuration file will restore the previous behavior recommended prior to upgrading to 5.2.5 or later.

    on my /core/includes/config.php file i have this line :

    Code:
    $config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'utf8';
    Do I have to change it to

    Code:
    $config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'latin1';
    or Ignore this warning and hit confirm ?

    Yes my database has a character set of 'utf8'.

    I have the same startup warning, did you solve it yet?

    Edit: I decided to just take a leap of faith and un-comment the line in the config. Seams to have worked fine.
    $config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'utf8';

        I did what it's recommended and set my line to latin1







        Before starting upgrade from 5.2.4 to 5.2.5 .. The upgrade was smooth yes, but after all arabic characters became strange Including links !!!

          You didn't uncomment the line. Remove the "//" at the beginning of the line to uncomment it.

        What is the table and column collation in your database? If it's a UTF8 charset, change that field in the config.php file back to UTF8 - does that resolve the problem?
        Vote for:

        - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
        -
        *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
        - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
        - Highlight the correct navigation tab when you are on a custom page
        - "Quick Route" Interface...
        - Allow to use custom icons for individual forums

              The line :

              //$config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'latin1';

              doesn't do anything because its commented out. Try :

              $config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'latin1';
