Convert WP Database to UTF-8


This plugin can convert your WordPress database (both tables and columns) to UTF-8 character set. It will be especially useful when you move your database from one server to another where the default CHARSET is not UTF-8.


  • Admin interface


  1. Upload the directory utf-8-db-converter to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Then you’ll see the sub-menu UTF-8 DB Converter under the Plugins menu
  4. Follow the instructions – Done!

सामान्य प्रश्न

What’s happening “behind the scene”?
  1. Change tables: ALTER TABLE $table DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci
  2. Change columns: ALTER TABLE $table CHANGE $field_name $field_name $field_type CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci
What about the WP version?

As you’ve seen, only MySQL and PHP are required. Roughly speaking, it has nothing to do with WordPress, so you can use almost any version of WordPress.
