I have a simple web-app that reads files and stores them in MySQL. Now I
noticed that some characters are converted so some characterset
conversion must be taking place. For example the character - is
converted in â??.
HTTP_ACCEPT_CHARSET = ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,;q=0.7
HTTP Headers Information = Accept-Charset ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,;q=0.7
I have tried adding the following to my virtualhost: AddDefaultCharset
But that did not help. I suspect the problem is not the webserver-config
as the web-app is just reading a file from the local filesystem and
storing it in mysql. Maybe this is caused by my windows settings?
The MySQL table column is of type longtext and utf8 characterset, the
same as the html documents.
I’m using ruby 182-15.
Any ideas on how to fix this will be greatly appreciated.
