I've got a really weird problem. I run an oscommerce estore that's in swedish and exported an sql file through phpmyadmin from my webhost. The character set of the sql file is utf-8. The tables I exported the sql are all latin1 and when I open up the file on my ubuntu system all looks just fine. When i transfer the sql to my debian server and open it, some of the swedish letters are just screwed up and some are just fine. The locale on the server was set up as sv_ISO8859-1. Here's the real weird thing. When i import this sql file to the mysql database it displays fine on the website. e.g Väskor/Plånböcker Now when I click a link on the site that pretty much refreshes the page it becomes V�skor/Pl�nb�cker-> When I click a link again it turns back to normal (Väskor/Plånböcker), and then click again it goes to this V�skor/Pl�nb�cker-> Sometimes, I can click several links and it's fine and then the next click it changes to V�skor/Pl�nb�cker-> again. The server locales at the moment are set at UTF-8 and this is the problem I get. If i put the server locale to is8859-1 i get exactly the same issue with different gibberish where ÖÅÄ are supposed to be. Can anyone tell me what's going on?
