I have a query to search for a name in a directory but there is an accent in the name and is not returning any results.
$query = "SELECT * FROM directory WHERE name=\"$name\"";
if I echo this I get:
SELECT * FROM directory WHERE name="Lorquet, Sébastien"
This returns nothing.
In the database the name is as is and I checked this. It finds all other data except for the two entries that have an accent.
I have also tried putting this code in
header ('Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8');
but then I get the following results: Lorquet, SÃ©bastien
I have also tried changing the setting in the table to utf8_general_ci and it still did not work.
