I’m setting up a new server and want to support UTF-8 fully in my web application. I have tried this in the past on existing servers and always seem to end up having to fall back to ISO-8859-1.
Where exactly do I need to set the encoding/charsets? I’m aware that I need to configure Apache, MySQL, and PHP to do this — is there some standard checklist I can follow, or perhaps troubleshoot where the mismatches occur?
This is for a new Linux server, running MySQL 5, PHP, 5 and Apache 2.
