Description Steven Moix 2008-07-12 07:44:27 EDT
Description of problem: 
With the default IndexOptions directive in httpd.conf (IndexOptions
FancyIndexing VersionSort NameWidth=* HTMLTable), files with accents (é, ü,
à...) aren't displayed correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
httpd-2.2.8-3.i386, but probably with each other version too.

How reproducible:
On every Fedora installation with the default configuration.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install httpd
2. Create a file with accents in it's name, for example été.txt
3. Browse to the directory with a browser
Actual results:
Accents aren't displayed correctly.

Expected results:
Display accents in file names.

Additional info:
By modifying the IndexOptions directive to "IndexOptions FancyIndexing
VersionSort NameWidth=* HTMLTable Charset=UTF-8" it solves the problem.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2009-02-23 09:03:55 EST
This was done in the Raw Hide (Fedora 11) package; usually we don't backport httpd.conf changes to avoid .rpmnew/etc spam, and since they won't take for many users anyway.

Thanks for the report!
