I just upgraded my WordPress to 2.3.3 with Fantastico. Suddenly, all Chinese characters on my blog changed to garbled characters. Man! What a pain to edit all of the words.

I searched around and got a perfect solution. Actually the problem was on the wp-config.php file.

Open the wp-config.php file and edit as shown below:

//define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);
//define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

Add “//” on those entries above.

And make sure there is no line at the end of the file (after ‘?>’). Delete the line if you find it.

Voila! Everythings back to normal now 😉
