MariaDB and german umlauts

Hi!

I have a problem with german umlauts.
On my developing pc the umlauts are shown correctly in the application and when I browse the data with HeidiSQL.
But on my customers side it is correct in HeidiSQL not in my application.

What could be the reason for that?

Hi Timm,

I suggest you change the Character set on all tables to 'latin1'. I hope it helps.

Hi Ignacio,

changing the character set to 'latin1' did not help.

When I try to save a field with an umlaut I get this error message:

Hi,

Tested the word 'Störung' with a personal software and it worked nicely with character set latin1.

Be aware that character set can be set even at field level.

Hi Ignacio,

finally I found the problem.
my.ini contained the row 'character-set-server=utf8'.
I deleted that line and now it works.

I would like to encourage everbody to use MariaDB!
Very powerful and I am asking myself why I have stuck with dbf for so long.
The Xailer team did a great work with the integration. Many, many thanks!

Regards, Timm
