Subject RE: [users@httpd] PHP + Apache 2

Hi Mehmet Tahir !

As I explained in a recent message (which has no answer yet :( ), IE doesn't
convert to %xy while other browser do.
I've no problem with PHP but with Apache itself, Apache 1.x can't serve a
file when I directly ask for bébé.txt, I'm obliged -RFC 1738 recommand it!-
to encode é to %E9.
But Apache 2 *only* serve bébé.txt and DO NOT serve b%E9b%E9.txt !
Using IE (remember it doesn't convert) works, using other browser fail :(

RFC 1738 :

In addition, octets may be encoded by a character triplet consisting
of the character "%" followed by the two hexadecimal digits (from
"0123456789ABCDEF") which forming the hexadecimal value of the octet.
(The characters "abcdef" may also be used in hexadecimal encodings.)

What can I do ?
This problem occurs on all Apache 2 I have tested (no tested under linux).

Objet : [users@httpd] PHP + Apache 2


I know that it is not recommended to use PHP with Apache 2, but I saw an
interesting problem. I tried the situation both 1.3.31 and 2.0.50. The
operating system is Windows 2000 Pro. Also, I tried the situation both
with PHP 5.0.1 and 4.3.8.

Whenever sending a Turkish input to the php from the address bar,
if I use mozilla, it sends as "index.php?wiki=T%FCrk%E7e" with
traslating Turkish characters to the well-known %xx format.
if I use explorer, it sends as "index.php?wiki=Türkçe" with Turkish

In Apache 1.3.31, both work.
In Apache 2.0.50, explorer shows an Server Internal Error, but mozilla

Another point, I am not sure about it, but maybe this can help. In the
three situation of the four, that the system works the output of the php
is *in Turkish* characters for my system. However, I saw a RedHat system
with apache 1.3.xx with the same PHP code. It works, but the output of
the PHP is *not* in Turkish, it is in %xx style.

And also, if you wanna see it, the address is
Try the Turkish link with both explorer and mozilla.

So, does anybody have an idea about it?

(Sorry, I used some Turkish characters in the message)
