Fix of an encoding problem

Following a change of encoding tables in centreon database which occurred in the 2.7.0 version, bad encoded characters appear in the Centreon web interface. Indeed, the change charset “latin1” to “utf8” was not followed by an update of the content of tables in the database.

To restore a valid encoding of special and accented characters, it is necessary to manually run the script provided by Centreon.

Warning

This script should be run once and only once.

If an operator has modified/corrected special characters or accented since the 2.7.0 update, processing performed by the script will truncate the string to turn on the first special or accented character. It will then be necessary to change the impacted objects to manually update them. (The script can unfortunately provide the list of impacted objects.

All contents of table type “varchar”, “char” or “text” will be updated

Prerequisites

Don’t forget to backup your database before doing any operations.

Installation

Download and install the script in “/usr/share/centreon/bin/” with the command:

wget http://resources.centreon.com/upgrade-2.6-to-2.7/migrate_utf8.php -O /usr/share/centreon/bin/migrate_utf8.php

Execution

From a shell terminal, perform the script:

php /usr/share/centreon/bin/migrate_utf8.php

Validation

Connect to your web interface and check that there are no more bad encoded characters on it.

  • Changing databases schemes for hostgroups and servicegroups in the real state database (centreon_storage) : added id and deletion of alias, url, url note, icon.
  • Changing the path for generating the configuration of Centreon Engine instances : no more specific page to generate the configuration. The action is now available from the pollers list.

Known Bugs

  • ACL of pages is not fully updated during the upgrade process. So please check all your ACL pages after the migration. You may have problems with the followings pages:
  • Monitoring > Hosts
  • Monitoring > Services
  • Monitoring > Performances (new page)
  • Monitoring > Downtimes
  • Monitoring > Comments
  • Monitoring > Eventlogs > System logs
  • Graph slip not working

  • Pagination is broker when you go on the last page, change the number of line to the Max. Page become empty.

  • If you have timeperiods used in exception or inclusion of timeperiod and now deleted, their ids stays in the database in relation table. During the sql update process, this blocks an addition of constraint on this relation table. To fix it, you have to remove old timeperiod id.:

    mysql> DELETE FROM timeperiod_exclude_relations WHERE timeperiod_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod) OR timeperiod_exclude_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod);
    mysql> DELETE FROM timeperiod_include_relations WHERE timeperiod_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod) OR timeperiod_exclude_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod);
