Encoding problem with Hebrew characters

Post by Yossi Aharon » Thu Apr 21, 2016 8:18 am

I use the converter to convert old version of IPB forum to PHPBB 3.0. The content in database of the IPB is in Hebrew characters and stored in database as latin1 encoding and I want to convert all to entries to UTF-8. When I try to use iso8859-8 encoding all the characters shown as blank or 0 but when I change to latin1 I receive strange characters. I guess that need to change the iconv function in the converter. Someone have any suggestions?
