I put back on my forum (phpbb) after server-install and with Code: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /> in header I suppose it should show up correct right away. ISPConfig (php or apache with perfect debian etch setup) shows this coded as utf-8 in browser, so umlauts are not readable anymore... Any idea where to look or what to change to get it show up the right way? Just put generally iso-8859-1 into apache and php-config can not be the usual/right way i guess. EDIT: Probably found it.../etc/apache2/conf.d/charset tells apache to use "AddDefaultCharset UTF-8" and this overrides my meta for the phpbb-forum. Is there a special reason for this charset-conf so that i just can change it into iso-8859-1 or is just my forum-header not working the right way...even with default-charset, the browser should notice the header...or not????
