That is a great tip!
I searched these forums for an after upgrade conversion script in case you disable the conversion in upgrade php, I mean the utf-8 conversion part only.
With your tip I can comment out some conversions I think that are not needed to speed up the process. But, and that is also why I need an after upgrade conversion script, I want to make sure also those commented out utf-8 conversions are done later on, just in case I missed some thing.
Yesterday I did an 20 mb database conversion which took about 35 minutes, see elsewhere in this thread. Today I did an 12 mb database conversion which took only 6 minutes. But that was on an other server with more memory. So I don't think I'll encounter time out problems, even with the biggest datebase of 30 mb.
But an after upgrade conversion script is appreciated.
