I used to upload data to my refbase installation by converting a bibtex-file to mods with bibutils 4.2 (on OS X). Then to ris. And then upload to the webpage via the import page.
I upgraded to bibutils 4.8 and now even simple german umlauts don't make it on the webpage (http://www.deabib.org/refbase/).
* Is anyone here aware of changes in bibutils from 4.2 to 4.8 that may be the cause?
* I tried an ris file at http://demo.refbase.net/ and it just worked. What version of bibuils is installed there?
Thanks - Daniel
I now downgraded my local bibutils installation to 4.2 but this didn't change anything.
I also discovered that some Umlauts import ok, others don't. So there must be a difference between them that I don't see while working with the bibtext-database. I will find out…
Still, it seems that http://demo.refbase.net/ is better with importing the ris entries I create. So I would still like to know which version of bibutils is used there. Is the mysql-database in UTF8 or in latin1?
