    Server does not accept French characters

    Hello what would be the cause of this issue? Many applications like PHP-Nuke and PHPBB installed on the server gives us these weird characters. What would be the cause and how do I resolve them.

    Example site.

    Here is the server info for this site.

    Thank you

    I'm currently struggling with this kind of thing also. It's a problem about the charset info. To display that site correctly you need the charset ISO-8859-16.

    But how to solve this in general... I have no clue. Best thing probably is to use html entities which work like:

    Their must be and easier way...

    I am not sure but I would rather fixe the Apache issue then rewrite Php nuke for my customer's. Any tips on this subject or where should I start looking.

    Thank you

    Try to set the default charset of your apache webserver with:

    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

    If UTF-8 wont work, try to replace UTF-8 with the correct charset for your language, e.g. iso-8859-1.
