I am exporting my db from my web host using phpmyadmin. This produces a single .sql file.
When I check the export with Notepad+, there are special characters in the file.
e.g. in my source db the following text;
The cost is £40 per person.
Is changed in the sql file to;
The cost is Ã‚Â£40 per person.
The charset on the source db are all either utft or utf8mb4
DO I need to change any specific setting on the source db to ensure that there are no special characters during export? Currently I am leaving all the phpmyadmin settings default.
