Charset problem / PHP

I have a probably quite easy charset problem with the Oracle DB:

I have a table which contains German umlaut characters, like "ö".

Oracle SQL developer correctly shows the text, but when I access the DB with a PHP script, "emil-gött-straße" becomes "emil-gott-stra?e". Is there a possibility to fix this with a function call or similiar in the PHP script, without changing the webserver or database setup? Received on Wed Apr 09 2008 - 06:38:23 CDT
