Vietnamese Forum Language Issue

Post by vitacreations »


I'm migrating my forum from IPB 2.1.x to phpBB2 using the IPB to phpBB converter to convert my IPB database to phpBB compatible database. After converting the database to phpBB the values in the database does not show proper characters as before (Vietnamese Characters using UTF-8). Even If I change the database entries manually, the database display correct characters but when I retrieve the post on forum , it still show improperly.

Could someone please help me to solve this problem. Is there any converter that support other languages as well (UTF-8 encoding)

I have already changed the default language to Vietnamese and collation of the database to use UTF-8.

Thanks a lot in advance,
