Do you mean using the same encoding on the import as the dump? Or, was
the correct encoding (to match the DB) used on the dump (or import)? Or
I'll have to check on exactly how the dump was generated. I've been
using CocoaMySQL (Mac OS X) to do the imports and have tried both
encodings, although, perhaps I should try it from the command line to
make sure CocoaMySQL is doing what I think it is. (The dump was
generated from a Linux system, although, I wouldn't think that would
make a difference.)
As to the wikis, the following are set to their DefaultSettings.php
$wgInputEncoding = 'ISO-8859-1'; # LanguageUtf8.php normally overrides
$wgOutputEncoding = 'ISO-8859-1'; # unless you set the next option to
$wgUseLatin1 = false; # Enable ISO-8859-1 compatibility mode
$wgEditEncoding = '';
But it sounds like I need to learn a bit more about this.
Assuming you can give an answer based on the information I've provided,
what is the correct way to do the dumps and imports? (URL or page name
