Description (last modified by Mariusz Felisiak)

When running the command 'python migrate' in a Django project, a UnicodeDecodeError occurs during the migration process.

The error trace indicates that the issue is related to decoding a byte (0xbb) at position 79, and the problematic code is within the PostgreSQL database backend connection setup. The error originates from the 'psycopg2' library, and the specific context points to a Unicode decoding problem in the '' file. The error disrupts the migration process and prevents the successful execution of the command.

Here is also Database Setting in my Django Project :

    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.postgresql',
        'NAME': 'Databank',
        'USER': 'user',
        'PASSWORD': '123456',
        'HOST': 'localhost',
        'PORT': '5432',
        'OPTIONS': {
            'client_encoding': 'UTF8',

Hi, I don't think you've explained the issue in enough detail to confirm a bug in Django. Please reopen the ticket if you can debug your issue and provide details about why and where Django is at fault (or a sample project that reproduced the issue). If you're having trouble understanding how Django works, see TicketClosingReasons/UseSupportChannels for ways to get help.
