I am switching hosting companies from justhost to vidahost. I have a site with foreign characters in the file names and folders. When I upload them to my justhost hosting they appear fine in the browser address bar, like they do here...
However, when I upload to Vidahost hosting, the only way they can be handled is by encoding the special 'ä' character, for example...
I can also see the difference in cpanels file manager, at justhost the foreign characters in the file and folder listings display correctly, where as at vidahost the special characters are replaced with '�' in cpanels file manager.
On a side note, all my files are encoded in utf8.
I'm pretty sure this is an Apache server setting. I'm trying to explain this to vidahost, but I'm not getting very far.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
