I need some help with the following problem (described also here:
I am moving a MediaWiki based webpage from one server to another.
After exporting the database and importing it to the new server I got
the message "1271: Illegal mix of collations for operation ' IN '
(mysql.extremefaith.info)". So I updated MediaWiki to the newest
stable version (1.13.3) which caused the change of the $wgDBmysql5
variable value to "true" and that solved the problem.
Yet another one appeared. Although the content of the present pages
remained unchanged (all the national characters were present) all the
links with national characters became "red" (f.ex. "Śnieżnobiałe
światło") and I can't access the content of those pages. What's more
when I add the content manually some pages still remain "red". When I
click on this kind of edited-"red" page I can see the content but it's
being opened in "edit" tab by default. All the tables have
"latin2_general_ci" collation set.
Could you please help me to fix the "red" links with national characters?
(You can see the red links f.ex. here:
