I'm trying to move my MediaWiki installations to a new server. I backed everything
correctly up and been able to complete the setup program. After all necessary steps, I
place the new LocalSettings.php in my web-root, run the maintanance script and try to
login with my usual credentials.
But all I get is a error message stating my username is unknown. If I lookup my username
in the user-table, everything looks fine. However, using the Special:User page, my
username contains garbage: Marcus St%F6hr instead of Marcus Stöhr.
I guess this is has something to do with UTF8 or the like. So, do I need to add another
setting to my LocalSettings.php or this there something I must consider when creating the
database for the import?
Thanks and all the best,
