I installed the dutch language pack and characters which should be ï are shown as ? within Confluence:
A little digging in the forums says it could have to do with character encoding settings. I have set everything up according to the manual. I also checked the results posted in this page.
I use MySQL as database and checked the status and table status. The output is looking good:
Also the JDBC connection is set to UTF8 in server.xml:
And also in the confluence.cfg.xml:
Within confluence settings itself also shows UTF-8:
my.ini of MySQL installation settings:
The results of the ./admin/encodingtestrun.action page:
Any ideas on how to solve these character problems?
Thank you, Martijn.
There are more steps in the How to fix Collation and Character set of a MySQL Database that will show you how to drill down deeper to tables and columns.
Can you review the steps there and let us know if it helps you?
I opened a support ticket for this issue. They told me it's a bug. They opened a bug report for me at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-53412
I hope the issue will be addressed soon. I am really in need of a dutch version of Confluence.
Thank you for your help.
