UTF-8 Problem

  • Michael Grosseck

    Hello there,

    My Apache specifies UTF-8 in the HTTP Header (even if I do not set the AddDefaultCharset) but the awstats html pages are generated in iso-8859-1. The most browser relate on the HTTP Header, so the awstats generated sites show me a lots of � instead the right character. If I switch manually to iso-8859-1 in the browser the characters are ok.
    But I can not switch back to iso-8859-1, because a lots of other sites on this server are already utf-8 encoded. So, how can I tell awstats to generate utf-8 encoded sites? The awstats version is 6.5 the default version on Debian Etch.

      Well, you cannot. You would have to change the AWStats source code to do that. It will probably be easier to move the AWStats reports to another server.

      I'm not sure I completely understand your problem, but have you set


      in your .conf?
