Enable MB *after* install

P: n/a
Hi All - is there a way to enable multibyte encoding after I have
already installed Postgres on Linux ? I need to be able to accept
French characters.

Thanks, Sylvie.

It doesn't look like there is a conversion function, however, you could
use pg_dump to create a backup, create the db with multibyte encoding,
then write the data back.
