.htaccess Japanese Apache support?


I am running REDHAT 8 and got everything up and going with PHPBB, MYSQL, etc.. APACHE etc, but I want to run a PHPBB with Japanese.

When a user logs onto my site they get garbled encoding, if they select JAPANESE for encoding then the pages display properly.

Do I need to edit the .htaccess file? Also, I am a total newbie with linux, so where do I find or put my .htaccess file? Is there one in my system by default or do I have to make one from scratch?

By the way I have been using linux for about 1 week and I love it now. I brings me back to my University days working on a UNIX terminal with green text. But it is my own system that I can control everything. How cool. I would appreciate help from anyone on this issue.

Regards,

ohlssonvox

I think you need to set apache to flag the page encoding as japanese, so that browsers can pick it up and automatically switch.

any idea bout how to do this though? I am a total beginner with this, but I can navigate my way around and change files as needed though. I just need to know what needs to be changed.

Check out your apache-mime.types if you have apache2.
Quote:
# This is the default mime.types file from the Apache web server distribution

# This file controls what Internet media types are sent to the client for
# given file extension(s). Sending the correct media type to the client
# is important so they know how to handle the content of the file.
# Extra types can either be added here or by using an AddType directive
# in your config files. For more information about Internet media types,
# please read RFC 2045, 2046, 2047, 2048, and 2077. The Internet media type
# registry is at <ftp://ftp.iana.org/in-notes/iana/ass...s/media-types/>.
