I setup a debian dist. a few days ago in order to use it as a web server. Apache2 and php5 is installed as well as PEAR and smarty packages.

The Problem is that the web server tends to encode everything to urf-8 even though in some pages I use:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-7">

There is a way to force the server to encode to iso-8859-7 via apache conf or php.ini but encoding to utf-8 is needed as well.

I can't find any solution. Is there anybody who has solved this issue in the past?

Thanks in advance
