Subject [users@httpd] FW: Apache 2.2 & AddDefaultCharset Problem
Date Sun, 19 Mar 2006 14:25:16 GMT

Hi all,

I`m using Apache 2.2 on my Solaris 9 (Sparc). I`m using virtual hosts and
tomcat 5.5. Everything is going well but I have a problem.

Apache puts the following headers:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sun, 19 Mar 2006 21:54:04 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.0 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.0 OpenSSL/0.9.8a mod_jk/1.2.15
Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=AE79CA772ED94B5067224648D5567BBA; Path=/
Content-Length: 7385
Content-Type: text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1

As you see above, " Content-Type: text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1 " header is
included and overrides my meta tag information which prevents browsers to
select proper language.

In my httpd.conf I added the following line:

AddDefaultCharset Off

But nothing changed. I also tried " AddDefaultCharset UTF-8 " just to check
that directive is working and header changes. But nothing changed.

What else should I do? According to docs in the thing I did was
enough? Am I wrong?......
