Hello,

i have a greek website in my webserver. Only the greek characters are not shown right. In the httpd.conf, the AddDefaultCharset is set to Off. In the website all the meta tags are right, but still nog greek characters are shown.

Hope someone can help me

when you display page locally do greek chars display correct?
if no problem is in html code. probably bad charset in <META> tag

if yes try
telnet <hostname> 80
GET /page.html HTTP/1.1
Host: <hostname>
\n

and look for Content-Type what charset send apache to client ...

HI. I had the same problem. I have the folowing solution for you. IN apache's httpd.conf you can change de default charset. It was UTF-8 I changed it to ISO-8859-1 Then my problem was solved.
