My website is blog/news aggregator. It reads rss and atom feeds to store
and stores data in a mysql database. The feeds may use different
character encodings, generally utf-8 and iso-8859-1. The parsing script
knows from the database when it visits a utf-8 feed and uses the php
function utf8_decode before send information to mysql. This has been
working great for five month.
Without any noticeable change in the configuration or in the scripts, it
started to convert iso-8859-1 to utf-8 before sending the data to mysql,
which doesn't undestand unicode, so texts with accentuated characters
Is it possible that the encoding of the php files cause such behaviour ?
Can you think of any other reason or solution ? Any help will be
Thanks in advance.
