    Hi there

    I work with a apache on a debian linux system.

    Now, I'd like to migrate the website to a redhat linux system.

    After the test migration all pages witch contains umlauts like , , are not perfectly shown like the are on the debian system.

    Do I have to configure something in httpd.conf or php.ini on the new redhat system?

    Thanks for help

    RedHat systems starting with version 8 use UTF-8 as their default character encoding, while Debian (at least as far as I know) uses ISO-8859-1. You could probably run the files through "iconv -f iso-8859-1 -t utf-8" to fix it.
