we moved our Confluence to another server some weeks ago. Since that all the non-English special characters didn't "survive" the move: there are question-mark ("?") everywhere.
In page contents e.g. title, contents, comments we are able to correct these errors but what could we do if the personal space name contains these "?" marks? See pic!
Thanks for your help!
Very likely this is an encoding related problem. Can you try the debugging steps in the following article: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Troubleshooting+Character+Encodings
Can you let me know the database type you use?
Can you run the following queries against your database and let me know the results (replace your database name accordingly):
use database_name; SELECT TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME, CCSA.CHARACTER_SET_NAME AS DEFAULT_CHAR_SET, COLUMN_NAME, COLUMN_TYPE, C.CHARACTER_SET_NAME FROM information_schema.TABLES AS T JOIN information_schema.COLUMNS AS C USING (TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME) JOIN information_schema.COLLATION_CHARACTER_SET_APPLICABILITY AS CCSA ON (T.TABLE_COLLATION = CCSA.COLLATION_NAME) WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA=SCHEMA() AND C.DATA_TYPE IN ('enum', 'varchar', 'char', 'text', 'mediumtext', 'longtext') ORDER BY TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME;
use database_name; status;
