i have found that using UTF8 causes a few of the webscripts to crap out with byte encoding errors, yet if i use the default option of LATIN when the db is created all is fine, yet i notice that the default db made by pgsql uses SQL_ASCII, which would people suggest to use, obviously UTF8 isnt and option because of the issue above, should i leave it as the default of LATIN and get on with it or try SQL_ASCII and see what happens.

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/static/multibyte.html - i have tried reading that, but its still not clear, well not as clear, clearer than it was :D

UTF8 not an option as it kicks out - might have to go with mysql anyway as the ftp prg im using dont seem to like pgsql :( and i cant really see the point of having 2 dbs installed on here.

edit: i wonder if its because the sql from the ftp prog made it SQL_ASCII could explain the probs im having, time to investigate :p

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
