Next time please write the problem in the mail.
How did you moved the database from windows to Unix?
If you did export under windows with WE8ISO8859P1 charset and then
imported it to a new database defined with AL32UTF8 charset I think you
are out of luck.
My guess is that you are getting inverted question marks which represent
char(191), unknown character.
When you import from one charset to another all characters in the source
export that does not belong to the source database will be converted to
Since your data was the result of encryption the characters are not part
of WE8ISO8859P1 charset.
You can test it by selecting dump(field) from the tables and checking
the binary codes in the database.
I am sure someone will tell all of us if I am wrong.
