On my localhost (Im using XAMPP webserver package) I have MySQL 5.0.15-nt.On target machine i have Server version: 5.0.27-standard (MySQL client version: 4.1.10).
So i export my DB through phpMyAdmin's interface on localhost and then try to import it to my site embrancesblog.com. As you can see some letter are screwed.
I tired the gzip,the xipped and the normal method but no lack.
On both host i have the setting of MySQL connection collation to be : utf8_general_ci
