Two changes to the page that converts the database to UTF8.

  • Avoid displaying the warning about lack of disk space when the database has already been upgraded to UTF8. Displaying the warning regardless had caused some confusion, see this topic in the user forum

  • Currently the processing checks the space available on the drive with the root directory '/', which might not be the actual location of the database. mysql has a parameter, datadir, giving the location of the database that can be used instead of '/'.
    This change is also made to the upgrade page.
