Thanks for taking the time to read this and assist me. My forum at www.aquariumfishforum.com
has been up and running for months with no problems. However, after a recent upgrade from MySQL4 to MySWL5 on my host server, I am having a problem that seem to stem from one mod or another, always resulting in a "cannot modify header information" debug message and some visual issues such as the forum displaying large fonts.
After a lot of investigating and reinstalling quite a few mods (all of which I have been updating when available), I believe the problem is being caused by the MySQL5 upgrade. More specifically, I have noticed some changes in the collation of many database entries. In fact, I have been able to fix almost all of my problems by changing the collation.
Before I get too far into these changes, I am wondering if I am doing the right thing by changing all of the collations to utf8_bin. All of the collations I have changed so far have been 'latin1_swedish_ci' for some reason. As explained above, I only use the British English language set on my site and I have been able to fix many problems by changing to utf8_bin. To be honest, I'm only using utf8_bin because the majority of my other database entries use this setting and since everything worked fine before... Unfortunately I didn't pay enough attention to collations before the upgrade so that is the reason I am not sure if I am doing the right thing or not.
Again, thanks for your time and help with fixing this highly annoying problem!
