I'm posting some text into my sql INSERT statements and once the text get's into the database it doesn't show as expected.
This is what I get inside my database: laÅ¾ljivo. This is what I should get lažljivo (language:Croatian).
In my ajax-jquery I've put the following:
contentType: "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8"
header('Content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8');
The header contentType is a different thing from mysql connection which also need to be set,you can even set it in your cnf file so it stays utf8
SET NAMES utf8
