help: Can't enter Jap characters via web, must use phpAdmin...

Recommended Posts

I have set the .access and all html and php files to be enocding in utf.

however, when i enter Japanese text into the mySQL db via web forms, it is sending garbage.

the only workaround i have now is to manually enter the data into the database via phpAmin...then the data is displayed correctly in the website....so I feel the data is fine coming from the db, but the problem is in sending it...

the database is on a shared server, so I cant convert the database type.... or can I? or... do I need to?

any ideas?

Sounds like PHP isn't set up correctly; if the DB is fine, and PHPMyAdmin can do it, then that part of the backend is ok.
