Specify encoding for DumpBackup.php output

2 (talkcontribs)

Is it somehow possible to specify the encoding for the DumpBackup.php output?

Our language specific characters in our wiki (like German umlauts etc.) are exported as "ü" for "ü" and so on.

I can´t find any solution for this in Manual:DumpBackup.php.

encoding should always be utf-8. This is the only encoding mediawiki supports. (if your mw install is very very (pre 1.5) rules are slightly more complicated.)

Possibly the dump file is correct and the issue is how you are viewing it.
