I have tried to convert my database from latin1 to utf8, but failed.

My apm is Apache/2.2.9, PHP Version 5.2.6, MYSQL 5.0.51b.
And the database is here;


+--------------------------+----------------------------------+
| Variable_name | Value |
+--------------------------+----------------------------------+
| character_set_client | utf8 |
| character_set_connection | utf8 |
| character_set_database | latin1 |
| character_set_filesystem | binary |
| character_set_results | utf8 |
| character_set_server | utf8 |
| character_set_system | utf8 |
| character_sets_dir | /opt/lampp/share/mysql/charsets/ |
| collation_connection | utf8_general_ci |
| collation_database | latin1_general_ci |
| collation_server | utf8_general_ci |
| completion_type | 0 |
| concurrent_insert | 1 |
| connect_timeout | 10 |
+--------------------------+----------------------------------+
14 rows in set (0.00 sec)

I have backuped from phpmyadmin and make new database of utf8.
And open backup file in notepad++ and save backuped file encord option utf8.

I restored new sql file at phpmyadmin to new database. But most of characters are broken.

Any helpful comment or link of guide would be appreciated.
