Hello,

Could you tell me on which database you deployed Kimios ? I suppose you use Mysql.

In the current release, the Mysql version is buggy, regarding the UTF-8 support.

But, you tell me that when you manually browse database, the characters are ok ?



I am launching a test on the arabic charmap, and I give you news about that this week.


Regards,

Fabien

Hello,

After test on our side, I think its the database.

Especially if you're using mysql.

You ve to ensure that the connection to the database used by the Kimios Server is really is really set on UTF-8.


By default, this is the Mysql server settings which override this behaviour. So you have to update your my.cnf (my.ini under Windows), the Mysql Server settings file, and add the followiing, under the section:

character_set_server=utf8


But on the current version you're using, you may still encounter troubles, because of the Kimios Database schema, which isn't precise enough, regarding the encoding.


The new Mysql script fixes this problem.

It will be included in the next release 2.0.1, coming very very soon.

Fabien
