I’ve updated the image so that it’s set to utf8 by default.

Great quick fix, helped me too. You’re the man!

Thank you !!! You realy help me.

Run the following commands to fix that: <br><pre># Do a backup: <br> <br>mysqldump redmine > redmine_backup.sql <br> <br># Convert to utf8 <br> <br>mysql --database=redmine -B -N -e “SHOW TABLES” | awk ‘{print “ALTER TABLE”, $1, “CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;”}’ | mysql --database=redmine</pre>
