[MediaWiki-l] mySQL 4 -> 5 and latin1 -> utf-8 conversion

Dear list,

I'm trying to convert a mediawiki-mysql-dump from latin1 to utf-8 to
move from MySQL 4.0.27 to MySQL 5.x.

What I did so far was searching for a working way to achieve this. I
found several solutions which in my eyes did not work.

Is there a recommende way, which will almost ever _works_?

Or are not all data important to convert e.g. _objectcache?

regards Holger
