Why is the character set displayed in the browser?


I’m having problems with the database. I imported the database to the hosting, specified the encoding both when creating a user and when importing: cp1251_bin. Everything is fine in the mayadmin control panel, but the character set is displayed in the browser.

What could be the problem? Site and database encoding windows 1251.

I usually always use


Try in the script, after connecting to the database, do something like this:

mysql_query('set names cp1251');
