Hi All,

I'm moving a Latin1 database to a new server but when used mysqldump via SSH there are a few problems with special characters like the "£" sign, quotes, dashes and double quotes.

Is there a way I could do do the MySQL dump while converting special characters to html entities or is there a way to make the changes before exporting the database via SSH?

Thank you

How are you executing the mysqldump command, i.e. what arguments are you using?  you can use the --xml flag to output things in XML or you may want to pipe your output into a file (mysqldump [arguments] > $filename

This is the statement structure I'm using:
 mysqldump -u username -p database_name > dumpfile.sql

Open in new window
