Actually the httpd server "renders" the html pages in "c", that is right
default configuration

I actually run into this problem on the zone server.

Then I started to apply the UTF-8 settings on httpd and run as well into
the problem of having to restart the httpd

It sounds that you have actually tried the .htaccess entry:
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

I am not sure whether the httpd for the incubator is configured the same
aas the one for forrest but David pointed out that you sometimes "Need
to enable the use of .htaccess files". 

Can you try to set "AddDefaultCharset UTF-8" in the .htaccess file,
upload it and see what it gives. If nothing happens you need to ask on
@infra whether .htaccess files are enabled.
