Encoding issue while importing

edited June 2011 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm moving from Vanilla 1.3 to 2.0.17

I've exported my data using vanilla2export and imported it to the new installating.

The problem is, my Forum is in Portuguese and all old messages are stopped whenever a foreign character appears.

My LUM_ tables are set to latin1_swedish_ci while the GDN are set to utf8_unicode_ci

What can I do to solve this? Can anyone help me?

    Oh, this isn't good. You may be able to fix this by changing the charset and related fields in the config-defaults.php file located at /config/config-defaults.php

    Good luck!
