|how to turn BLOB back to be readable text?|
I have a mysql table with columns "author_name" (such as Apple) and "text".
In localhost, the text displays very well in phpMyAdmin, however when I uploaded everything to my host, the value in the columns suddenly become "[BLOB]".
Everything still works fine, but i can't access those data directly from my phpMyAdmin anymore.
do you know how to turn [BLOB] back to a readable text?
thanks for your help.
I'm no expert, but it seems to me that your problem lies in the area of "charset"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
If the rendered web page is not on the same wavelength as the Db Table, what you describe is quite possible.
thanks! it's exactly what happened.
I've changed the Collation setting in PhpMyAdmin and adjust the encoding. It's displayed without any problems now.
