Hi @cridum,

There are two potential causes for this: Either…

  • your character set configuration changed, or
  • your database character set configuration changed.

The easy one to confirm is your Does its character set configuration match your old installation exactly?

Thaks for you reply, the problem was in the default values for Mariadb chartset (latin-1) in /etc/mysql/mariadb.cnf, after change to utf8 all goes ok.

Merci beaucoup.
