hmm, then I probably add the directive but comment it out, and explain
with a note;
I've just tested and transfered from Linux a file with UTF-8 German
Umlaute äöüß, and it was stored on the server, then retrieved same file
from Win32, and that worked; however when I access the filesystem with
the client then the filename is garbage, but still accessable. If I
store a file with German Umlaute with the client then FileZilla is noz
happy with it, and reports:
Status: Invalid character sequence received, disabling UTF-8. Select
UTF-8 option in site manager to force UTF-8.
So if the user wants to serve files which were created via client then
its required to disable the UTF8 feature I think ...
Probably we can add a new directive for the future which can specify
conversion like mod_char_lite; something like:
I think from this other systems can also profit, or?
