Forum OpenACS Q&A: How do I change the character set encoding of my catalog files?
I'm working on a database whose character set was recently changed to UTF8. I had a bit of a job correcting some messed-up data, but I've managed to do it. Now I want to regenerate my catalog files, but when I run "export to catalog files", the files are called package-key.locale.ISO-8859-1.xml and they all have encoding="ISO-8859-1" at the top of the xml file. I've changed the character set of the locale to UTF8 and restarted AOLserver. What else can I do?
The translation server for example runs utf-8 but still spits out iso-8859-1 catalog files.
You would need to change the code if you wanted to have utf-8 catalog files for all locales (and then you could not merge changes from the translation server or newer openacs releases as easily).
If there is a good reason to switch all catalog files to utf-8 its pretty easy; just make the case...
Thanks for the clarification.
