Use the old database with new osc 2.2 ms-2c


Recommended Posts

I have upgrading my OSC to 2.2 ms-2c recently but using the old database from an old version OSC.


I backup my data from my old mySQL and restore in the new osc 2.2 ms-2c. Everything is OK but only the chinese character cannot see.


My new version of OSC which I have installed have the language of Traditional Chinese, Simplify Chinese and English, but only the english language can show properly. The Simplify Chinese is even missing in the front and at the back-(admin)!


I know that it may be the old version of OSC is using big5 for traditional chinese and new version of OSC is using UTF8! Can I just change the language code (from big5 to utf8) in the mySQL? OR we cannot use the old data anymore, as the old data is written by big5?


Sorry for my poor english!

I would try changing the collation sequence on the new db to be the same as your original db.


There is a connection collation and field level sequences.


Hope that gives you a pointer in the right direction.
