How To Convert The Database Encoding Into Utf-8 Through Ssh Commands

How To Convert The Database Encoding Into Utf-8 Through Ssh Commands

Hello there

Actually I'm trying to convert my database encoding from Latin1 into utf-8

so I followed many tutorials, but it didn't work, then I asked my server's technical support team to do something around it, and they've told me that ssh is a communications program so it won't convert the encoding any way.
and what seems to be suitable is BASH commands, we'll have to
dump the databases and run them through a character translated to adjust the
coding. However, any off-the-shelf program to do this will probably corrupt
vbulletin, so a vbulletin program will be the best chance.
hence they recommended me to contact you here as vbulletin experts

is there any way to convert my database from Latin1 into Utf-8
