Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to howto run 3.2.5 with European characters on nsd8x

The weird thing is that my watchdog is showing the following error:
    Error: can't read "portrait_id": no such variable
    can't read "portrait_id": no such variable
        while executing
    "ns_pg blob_write $db $portrait_id
        (file "/web/server1/www/shared/portrait-bits.tcl" line 30)
        invoked from within
    "source $script"
        (procedure "ns_sourceproc" line 6)
        invoked from within
    "ns_sourceproc cns51 {}"
