LC and MariaDB

I have switched my DB from SQLite to MariaDB. The DB and the system is configured with UTF8:

Code: Select all

MariaDB [(none)]> show variables like 'char%';
| Variable_name            | Value                      |
| character_set_client     | utf8                       |
| character_set_connection | utf8                       |
| character_set_database   | utf8                       |
| character_set_filesystem | binary                     |
| character_set_results    | utf8                       |
| character_set_server     | utf8                       |
| character_set_system     | utf8                       |
| character_sets_dir       | /usr/share/mysql/charsets/ |
But now, if I create an Insert, informations like ÄÖÜ are not in the DB. But why? It seems that I am not alone with MariaDB and this issue. If I try to store with LATIN2 the I only receive a ? and not the German "Umlaute".

Any Ideas how to fix this?

Hi Stefan,

not sure, but I think you need to textencode() and/or textdecode() the data when saving and/or retrieving data to/from the database.

Thanks Klaus!

textencode() is working in the case that I encode every SQL insert.
