Default Charset


Recommended Posts



I was using Nano 5.3 with no issues commenting AddDefaultCharset directive in Apache configuration. Backed up everything and downloaded Nano 5.4 stable with UTF-8 support.


First thing was to comment again the AddDefaultCharset directive in Apache config, saved and started Nano 5.4


Loaded a page that is using

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=Windows-1251" />

but still UTF-8 encoding was forced and text on page was messed up.


Any thought or ideas ?







Tried to use AddDefaultCharset WINDOWS-1251 with no luck - UTF-8 was forced also.

Try the following:


Edit file:


Comment line as shown

#AddDefaultCharset UTF-8


Edit file:


Comment line as shown

;default_charset = UTF-8


It will not force a UTF-8 header a browser then needs to use the meta tag.


All the best
