Encoding issue (utf-8/ISO)


I just set up a new domain and everything went great. It’s a Joomla install and I have done many of these before but this is the first I have done in Virtualmin. When I migrate it from the current server to the new one in Virtualmin and then view the site I get either question marks in diamonds (FF) or squares (IE7) for certain characters such as { or â

There are two places where encoding matters: Web server, and database server.

I’m guessing it’s just the webserver in this case (as I think a database dump includes setting the encoding…but I might be wrong about that). So, you probably just want to remove the AddDefaultCharset option from httpd.conf, which will allow applications to set the charset in the meta tags.

That was it! Thanks so much.
