Hello for the first time.

Recently I updated my mediawiki from 1.4 to 1.5.8. Did everything the upgrade 
guide said.

First I backed up the database and the wiki/ directory too. Then I replaced 
everything except LocalSettings.php, images/ and extensions/, with the 
correct permissions. Created the AdminSettins.php, ran maintenance/update.php 
and refreshLinks.php. At last, php -f rebuildMessages.php rebuild, because I 
had everything in "es" (like Portada instead of MainPage). Now, the problem 
is that every article shows a "?" sign instead of the correct non-english 
character, like accented vocals or Ñ. The content is in spanish, so there are 
a lot of words like this: "?rbol" instead of "árbol".

You can see it here:

What can I do?

If you need more info please ask.

Thanks for your time
