#279 UTF-8 displayed as ISO-8859



I installed ubuntu's package (http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/postfixadmin/postfixadmin_2.3.5-2_all.deb) and configured it to use apache2 and postgresql. The database was created OK using UTF-8. I enter accented characters and they're properly handled (I can check this using phppgadmin). However, when I browse domains or users whose names or descriptions have accented characters, they show up as 2 weird characters (this is what normally happens when UTF-8 chars are interpreted as ISO-8859-X).

If I try to edit the name in postfixadmin, the field to be edited displays OK. The problem is when it is being "shown".

Using stock ubuntu server 12.04

    The default value for the encoding parameter was changed to UTF-8 since 5.4.0

    I see... the problem is that I'm using quantal's .deb in precise (which has php 5.3.1).

    I edited a couple of source files and fixed it.

    Thanx for your help.

    Sorry for that, but what exactly should be changed?

    This was a regression caused by the security fixes in 2.3.5 and should be fixed in PostfixAdmin 2.3.6.

    If you still see this problem with 2.3.6, please reopen ;-)
