Default Ftp and Swedish characters in Directory field

Hi all,

This issues came up after moving to new server. Everything is identical besides hardware. OS Debian 6.0.3

I have a issue regarding FTP part in ISPConfig 3. I have created new FTP user and i have changed the path i Directory field to a folder inside user webspace. Problem is that created folder contains swedish characters.

Code:
/var/www/clients/client1/web1/webdav/ftp/testing/skåne
With this path i get error connect with Filezilla:

Code:
Home directory doesn't exist. Abort.
If i remove skåne part than it connects correct. In dbispconfig database path looks correct. Could it be that Pureftpd doesn't translate "skåne" part correctly.

Any thoughts?

That can be the case. ISPConfig supports all foreign characters as it uses UTF-8, but this does not mean that all other software are able to use the paths in their configuration even if they are correctly stored in mysql. Have you tried to enable debugging in pure-ftpd and check the log for errors then?

I highly recommend not to use any special characters in paths, usernames, etc.

Which Linux charset did you use on Lenny and which charset do you use on Squeeze now?

I have used "sv_SE.UTF-8" as default on both.

If i remove "skåne" from Directory path in ISPConfig and add "skåne" to remote path in Filezilla instead, than it connects without problems.

Only when i want to lock user to folder "skåne" and adding that to Directory path in ISPConfig that i cannot connect. I recive: "421: Home directory not available - aborting"

If i can connect to "skåne" folder when adding it to Filezilla's remote path than Pure-ftpd understands "å" character?
