New Question: Joomla 1.5 and unicode databse



A new question has been asked in "Moving to MariaDB" by alijam. Please answer it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/joomla-15-and-unicode-databse/ as the person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.

I have a server which (unfortunately) have tens of joomla 1.5 websites, After upgrade from Mysql to Mariadb 10 , all of the unicode texts are being displayed as question marks (i.e. ?????? ????), I looked into the databases , the data seems to be intact, even I moved some of them to another server with mariadb 5.6 which "seems" ok. It seems to be a driver/configuration issue.

It works on later versions of joomla (2.5& 3.x) versions. 
It seems mariadb should also be compatible with joomla 1.5
In the joomla system information it says:
Database Version: 	10.0.20-MariaDB
Database Collation: 	N/A (mySQL < 4.1.2)
PHP Version: 	5.4.41
Web Server: 	Apache
Web Server to PHP interface: 	cgi-fcgi
Joomla! Version: 	Joomla! 1.5.26 Stable [ senu takaa ama busani ] 27-March-2012 18:00 GMT
User Agent: 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 

Any help would be greatly appreciated , as I'm going to upgrade my other servers to mariadb.
