problems with special characters and apache
i've setup an apacheserver on a linuxbox; and imported an existing mysql database. Problem i have is that in the database special characters like é or à are not shown, and the webserver doesn't seem to automatically encode them in the parsed output in a browser, instead i'm getting a questionmark symbol for every special character .
Since both the scripts and the data are an identical copy from another server that returned these characters correct even tho they're not encoded in the database, i suppose there is a configurationsetting or module in apache that automatically does this.
Anyone can point me into the right direction to do this?
