Hi all.

I am running a french website hosted by a french hoster : OVH

This site runs Wordpress and a phpBB3.

To upgrade Wordpress to 2.92 I had to upgrade from MySQL4 to MySQL5.
To do this, I exported my database using mysqldumper (I don't really like to type lines of code...).

the sql file exported was coded in latin1.

I had to empty my sql4 db and erase it, then create a new one wich is now version 5. It is the normal procedure at OVH

I imported my database using mysqldumper, all worked ok but...

Almost all accentuated characters have been transformed :'(

Example : Vallée d'Ossau became Vallée d’Ossau

My 6 years old website is dead!!! Can anyone help me assuming that I'm not a professionnal coder?
