Encoding problem with MNET

06 January 2024, 9:17


We're actually using 23.04 (yes) since yesterday!  But we're having this problem from last summer upgrade to Mahara 22.10.

All users are connected through MNET from a moodle. User firstname or lastname with diactrics see misinterpreted character changed to a ?.  For example, my name is Stéphane Lavoie and it becomes St?phane Lavoie in Mahara.

Our Moodle DB is encoded utf8mb4_unicode_ci running mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.6.14-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64)

Our Mahara DB is encoded in utf8mb4_bin running mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.3.21-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64).

How can we fix this problem?
