Question

Filenames UTF-8

Hi,

I need help because the files named in UTF-8 are not being displayed in the browser.

example: http://107.170.35.246/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Aplicativo-auxilia-a-alfabetização-de-crianças-_corpo-150x150.jpg

Working example: http://institutoparamitas.org.br/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Aplicativo-auxilia-a-alfabetização-de-crianças-_corpo-150x150.jpg

It is the same image with the same name but are not being displayed.

How to make apache able to display images with names in utf-8?

Hi! <br>I have the same problem, but I´m unable to fix it uploading again the files with a utf8 ftp. <br> <br>For example: <br>http://95.85.13.136/fotos/2014/04/Almenas-en-el-techo-Visita-a-la-torre-Bellesguard-o-Casa-Figueres-Gaudí-en-Barcelona-Cataluña-España-by-machbel.jpg <br> <br>give error 404, but file exists exactly in server. <br>access.log say: <br> <br>[14/Apr/2014:13:04:40 +0200] “GET /fotos/2014/04/Almenas-en-el-techo-Visita-a-la-torre-Bellesguard-o-Casa-Figueres-Gaud%c3%ad-en-Barcelona-Catalu%c3%b1a-Espa%c3%b1a-by-machbel.jpg HTTP/1.1” 404 342 “http://95.85.13.136/fotos/2014/04/” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0” <br> <br>So, there is any way to fix this? <br>Server is Debian7 with apache. <br> <br> <br>

Hello, <br> <br>Thanks Tony Tsang and Meletis Flevarakis by return. <br> <br>The problem was solved, it was a problem with uploading files. <br> <br>The solution was to delete and upload the files again. <br> <br>=)

I have no problem of getting a 200 response with the mentioned URLs <br> <br>curl -i -X HEAD http://institutoparamitas.org.br/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Aplicativo-auxilia-a-alfabetização-de-crianças-_corpo-150x150.jpg <br> <br>Since RFC 3986 2.3 only allow a-z, A-Z, 0-9, -, ., _ & ~, http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-2.3 <br> <br>It is to better to encode the URL before using it as the image src. <br> <br>Using any character other than the defined reserved & unreserved character is not reliable, up to the user agent to handle.
