Mysqldump and mySQL/Mariadb import of Microsoft Word Special Characters Windows 1251 (Latin1)

I needed to export and import a WordPress database from Dreamhost. So, I logged in via command line dumped the files with:

mysqldump -u user -p > databases.sql

I then copied those files to the new server and ran

mysql -u user -p < databases.sql

Everything was going great until I loaded a blog post with Microsoft Word special quote marks in it. Arrg! I managed to get the files with quotes intact out of dreamhost with this:

mysqldump --default-character-set=latin1 -u user -h -p > databases.sql

However, In Mariadb on the new server Microsoft special characters were still wrong on the new server after the import!

So I ran this:

UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content =
                                       USING binary)
                                       USING utf8),
                                    post_content )

Life is good. MariaDB now correctly displays WordPress posts with all the Microsoft Windows 1251 – Latin1 junk.
