I’m working on a project; I need to save some fields like having arabic character like first_name, last_name. The form is posting all other fields correctly except these fields.
I directly saved arabic words in database table but still it is showing ???? instead of original words.
I’m using Charset
utf8 and Collation
utf8_unicode_ci with these fields.
Also on header I’ve
<meta charset="utf-8" />
I think it is some configuration issue of Cakephp because database seems okay. I’ve tried this so far, it is not working.
<h1 lang="ar"><?php echo $user['User']['first_name_ar']; ?></h1>
This is my database.php
public $default = array( 'datasource' => 'Database/Mysql', 'persistent' => false, 'host' => 'localhost', 'login' => 'root', 'password' => '************', 'database' => 'projectimpossible', 'prefix' => '', );
Thanks in advance.
