Hi I currently am having the same problem as many other people have been having and was wondering if anyone could help me... I have a phpBB forum in THAI language  which I checked in mySql that the Collation is all in Latin-1 which should be in UTF-8 ... and I don't know and kind of hesitated to change this since I don't really know what I'm doing... I have successfully converted phpbb to smf...  but the characters don't come out right at all... and I'm thinking collation set in my phpBB is probably the problem... can anyone help me with this?

Sorry, the database connection information used in the specified installation of SMF cannot access the installation of phpBB3. This may either mean that the installation doesn't exist, or that the MySQL account used does not have permissions to access it.

The error MySQL gave was: SELECT command denied to user 'mobilewo'@'WEB10' for table 'phpbb_users'

1) Can you tell us what collations are used in the original database (for both the forum tables and table columns), and what did you do (step by step)?

2) Follow the steps in reply #53, but replace:

mysql_query("SET NAMES $db_character_set");

with:

mysql_query("SET NAMES latin2 COLLATE latin2_polish_ci");


If that doesn't work, try:

mysql_query("SET CHARACTER SET latin2 COLLATE latin2_polish_ci");

Get the latest convert.php and find this:

mysql_query("SET NAMES $charset");


(Apparently, $db_character_set has been replaced with $charset in recent versions.)

What collation are the tables and the table columns?

What is the page encoding in your browser? (View > Character Encoding in Firefox, View > Encoding in IE)

What latin2 collation? latin2_general_ci, latin2_croatian_ci, or what?
What ISO encoding is autoselected in your browser? ISO-8859-1, -2, or what?

latin2_general_ci and iso 8859-1

Sarge

If you change the page encoding to ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-2 for your SMF forum pages from the browser, do the Polish characters show up correctly?

Link to your forum? Feel free to send it via PM if you don't want to make it public.

If you want to give me access, I can try doing the conversion myself.

If phpMyAdmin cannot see the DB but the converter can, something is wrong there. Contact your host about it.

UTF-8 supports cp1251 characters, you just have to convert them to UTF-8 format. But without knowing what exactly the original character set is, results can be unpredictable.
