how to get rid of diamond symbols on latest php version?

Thread began 2/22/2019 8:05 am by lr_leal239405 | Last modified 3/22/2019 6:31 pm by lr_leal239405 | 146 views | 8 replies


There's a specific folder with some pages in which I cannot successfully change the diamonds to the correct symbols. It's the same website, and the connection file has the same code as above. The DB is set to utf-general-ci, so are all the columns and so is the php file with the meta tag set to <meta charset="UTF-8">. I do a view source and it's correct, but the diamonds keeps displaying, until I change my browser to view as Western. What could I be missing? The page has a login so I can't send you the link for you to view. Is there a php option to force it? I saw something about ICONV but not sure how to implement yet.
