[SOLVED] Russian Text in MySQL and PHP


Recommended Posts

I have a database that will eventually have to be used for english, russian, spanish, and a few other languages. Right now I'm adding the russian to it, but when it outputs to the PHP page all I get are question marks. It's showing correctly in phpMyAdmin, but not when it's echoed. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have the database and the table set to


this in the header file

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

and this right after the database connection

$db->query('SET NAMES cp866');
