Post Convert From Iso-8859-7 To Utf-8 
 
We try to update from 1.3.0.53a to the latest version of IP but, we are in GReece and we use greek letters to our forums. So, after the update instractions we take the IP but not the greek letters in forum.

We use the latest WAPP in local PC and the tables of mySQL is also "not greek"
Do you have any idea in order to make the convertion work's for us?

Any help is welcome.

Well I'm very unshure about this stuff TBH, but have you tried running some stuff in DB And Security>>Database Maintenance?

The problem starts after the first step, the convertion to utf-8, nothing to do with DB Maintenance of IP admin panel. The usally problem with Greek letters.

Sorry, I have to ask a seconde time:

Did you copy convert_utf8_nodbal.php to your root and launched it?
There should be anything wrong.

Did you get an error there?

Oou yes Luca...

You can not imagine what he had to go, is large enaught my site with thausands of post, photo album, games ...

First of all I must say that the update from 1.3.0.53a  to ICY 2 is ok now with TheSteffen.
So is better that Steffen explaining some steps also useful for others.
But now as I now he's in holiday.

I have to thank him, hi si very good and my help was much moral support.
