latin1 (cp1252 West European) latin1_bin West European (multilingual), Binary latin1_danish_ci Danish, case-insensitive latin1_general_ci West European (multilingual), case-insensitive latin1_general_cs West European (multilingual), case-sensitive latin1_german1_ci German (dictionary), case-insensitive latin1_german2_ci German (phone book), case-insensitive latin1_spanish_ci Spanish, case-insensitive latin1_swedish_ci Swedish, case-insensitive
So, should I set the setting to latin1 (I think I tried it yesterday and gave me a IPS Database error), or cp1252? Or something else?

What database driver error did you get exactly?

This backup I'm trying to convert is the original DB we used back in 2007 before we moved to IPB. So, in 2007 I converted this same DB to IPB 2.x
My IPB DB then was also in latin1_swedish_ci and was working well with codepage iso-8859-7.
2-3 months ago I converted the codepage for my IPB to UTF8 (remember the ticket?).
So, what I want now is to re-convert the whole phpBB DB to a temp installation of IPB, then run the charset conversion script of Brandon to convert this temp installation to UTF8, and finally merge some hundreds of members from this temp IPB installation to my live IPB.
So, are you saying that I can completely skip the step of using Brandon's script to convert the charset if I use a specific setup during the conversion?
Facts so far:
I recovered the phpBB backup in a latin1_swedish_ci empty DB.
I installed a temp IPB in a latin1_swedish_ci empty DB.
Plan for later:
Convert the phpBB to IPB.
Run Brandon's script to re-encode the IPB temp to UTF8
Move some members from the temp installation to the live one.
