I'm using MySQL 5.1.58 on Debian Sqeeze and I'm trying to restore the dump of a database. Once it is restored I noticed that all the accented chars had become other chars as Ã¹ or Ã¨: completely different.
Looking in the dump I've seen that the problem is not at importing, but at exporting, becouse the strange chars were in the dump.
I exported that dump from another installation of MySQL (5.5) on ArchLinux. I tried also to use the argument --default-character-set=8tf8 in mysqldump, but it did not work.
Thank you in advance.
