Two upgrades - character problems

    Two upgrades - character problems [Solved]

    I upgrade to 7.1 and then again to 7.5. Now I have spurious 'Â' characters in all sorts of php/MySQL applications.

    I am almost certain it is a character set issue (UTF-8?) but cannot figure out what to do.

    Any ideas?

    For example, I am running Mambo and I look at the MySQL contents using phpMyAdmin and the field looks ok but in Mambo it appears with this character tagged on.

    However, the same is true for custom applications. A real pain in the neck.

    Figured I'd post the solution as eventually more will be running into the problem:

    In httpd.conf uncomment the line that reads:

    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

    and everything will be fine.
