Problems With Unicode Utf8

Currently me and a friend are coding up a new BitTorrent tracker. We
have a torrents table that has a column called 'info_hash' which
contains the info_hash as received by the announce.php script (this is
used to identify the torrent).

If we have the collation as latin1_general_ci, and I don't send any SET
NAMES OR SET CHARACTER SET queries after connecting, my announce script
can successfully retrieve the row from the torrents table. We however
want to use unicode throughout the project.

When I changed the charset of the table/db to utf8, the select
statement stopped working. It should be noted however that phpmyadmin
can successfully execute the same query when the table/db is set to

After calling mysql_connect I send SET NAMES 'utf8' and SET CHARACTER
SET 'utf8', but when I called mysql_client_encoding is returns latin1
however, which is what I think is the problem.

I am using PHP 5 and Mysql 5. Can anybody help me out?

Error - Utf8 "x94" Does Not Map To Unicode On Line 91

XHTML want's to play some games with me, I was doing fine, until up to now. Looking at the two code snippets below I don't see anything wrong with them, however when I try to validate I get "The error was: utf8 "x94" does not map to Unicode on line 91, I have commented line 91 to denote the problem area. And what's up with "Sorry this document could not be checked? Is there something I am not seeing, cause I have been using the same Doctype and validating
okay up until now?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">


This approach gives you more control for validating and formatting the information submitted. How? Well the user will be given a preloaded Date of Brith box with the option to select the Month, Day and Year as opposed to having the user type in some weird or crazy stuff. The caveat though is the fact that the html code just becomes longer and cumbersome on the eyes or coder.

Convert Variable Into Utf8

I'm having trouble with a few pages on xcart with the charsets. The problem we're having is that we need to have both utf-8 and iso type charsets as we're getting garbled code on some pages. What I can do is set the utf-8 on all pages and then encode the garbled code into utf-8. Is there a function that does this in PHP or any modules I can use?

Convert To UTF8 An Array Using Serialize?

convert to UTF8 an array using serialize() but it is not working.
The array:
Code: [Select]
Array ( [0] => Array ( [zona] => _Todas [conta] => 26 ) [1] => Array ( [zona] => Braga [conta] => 1 ) [2] => Array ( [zona] => Coimbra [conta] => 1 ) [3] => Array
But then when I try to use the unserialize() function to convert to array again I get this error:QuoteA PHP Error was encountered
Filename: controllers/v1.php
Line Number: 23
I know this error is caused by the character with accent decoded to UTF8.My question, how to solve this problem?I need to have the correct the bad character in the array that comes from the database.There is other options than use serialize() and unserialize()?PS:The array is for building an JSON so I'am not passing nothing to define the charset.It is possible to send in the headers the charset?

Serialization - Convert Serialized Strings To Utf8?

I'm trying to convert a greek database to utf8. At this point, I've figured out how to do it (via MySQL, not through the iconv() function) but I have a problem: The application stores lots of data in the database in php serialized format (via serialize()). As you may know, this format stores the string lengths in the serialized string. This means that since the lengths change after the conversion (because php5 doesn't support Unicode properly) those strings can't be unserialized anymore. So far, I'm considering using one of the following approaches to work around this:

Use PHP to convert those strings to utf8, and instead of converting the whole serialized string, unserialize it and convert every item in the array. Write a script to re-calculate the lengths of the serialized strings. Option #2 seems easier, but I'm thinking there has to be a quicker way to do this. Maybe even a freely available script for converting them, since I'm definitely not the first one to face this problem.

Encoding - Convert Utf8-characters To Iso-88591 And Back?

Some of my script are using different encoding, and when I try to combine them, this has becom an issue.But I can't change the encoding they use, instead I want to change the encodig of the result from script A, and use it as parameter in script B. So: is there any simple way to change a string from UTF-8 to ISO-88591 in PHP? I have looked at utf_encode and _decode, but they doesn't do what i want. Why doesn't there exsist any "utf2iso()"-function, or similar?I don't think I have characters that can't be written in ISO-format, so that shouldn't be an huge issue.
