Any help would be appreciated. Not sure if I should send to a MySQL
list, or this one ( I didn't want to cross post), so sorry if not
applicable. If this is not ok to ask in this group, can someone tell me
Because from what I understand, MySQL supports unicode, but various
features including ordering are not fully implemented which the website
my company is developing needs. The website will be launched soon, and I
believe the version of MySQL with the full Unicode support will not be
available in time.
Therefore I am going live with Western European encoding, which will
suffice for the moment.
I was just wondering if I do go live with Western European, is there, or
will there be some sort of conversion tool or function to convert the
Or would I need to export the entire database to a text file, convert
the encoding of the text file. Then convert the tables to unicode, and
then re-import the data. Because the database will be over 2 gig (using
MyISAM Raid so MySQL can support this), this will not be easy, as I will
have to export parts, convert parts, and then re-import them.
Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect them!
