    I have been reading and maybe the problem is that i upgraded from an older version of vBulletin that didn't support UTF-8 and converted every character of Hebrew to symbols?
    If it is the issue, is any solution to that?

    But now the forum doesn't work correctly, for example i can't connect.

    Yes, at least for the database. The language is a new file since Vbulletin 5 doesn't support the Vb 4 language file.

    This is what it was when running vBulletin 4.2.5?

    The character collation of the database is utf8_unicode_ci and the character encoding of my language is UTF-8 too

    The value in the config.php has nothing to do with how vBulletin displays data. It only tells vBulletin how to communicate with MySQL. As all newer versions of MYSQL communicate in UTF-8, this value doesn't server much use anymore.

    What is the character set and collation of your database?

    What is the character encoding of your language within vBulletin? (AdminCP) -> Languages & Phrases -> Language Manager -> Edit your language.

    It should be UTF-8 and you will probably have to set the Locale value to a proper UTF-8 locale (which means filling in all the other options on the page as well).

    HI,
    I upgraded today my forum from 4.2.5 to 5.4.3 and i installed it in a new directory and i connected it to a copy of the original database.
    I works fine except for the content of the forum, everything seems like gibberish.
    After comparing the updated sql database with the old one, the content looks like gibberish in both of them but somehow in my old forum, it manages to read it correctly.
    Old forum(4.2.5):
    http://prntscr.com/kax4jr
    New forum(5.4.3):
    http://prntscr.com/kax4sn

    I tried playing with $config['Mysqli']['charset'] in the config.php but nothing works.
