After migration to the new server all non-ascii characters in backups are replaced by '?'

fixed

#1

Steps to reproduce

  • create a new dynalist. Give it a title with some non-ascii characters, eg.
    “Моя поездка на Багамы”.
  • from main menu > download backup
  • unzip the downloaded zip file and check the contents of the .opml file

Expected result

<title>Моя поездка на Багамы</title>

Actual result

<title>??? ??? ?? ???</title>

Environment

Opera web browser (but changing browsers shouldn’t make a difference as the problem is with the downloaded zip backup file; the list contents are displayed properly on screen).

Additional comments

My gut feeling is that the problem stems from the default locale setting of the server. On the old box it was probably en_US.UTF-8 while on the new one it could be something like ISO-8859-1.

Please check the default locale setting of the new server and fix this problem, as it makes backups useless. Thank you.

Sorry about that, the Java on the new server comes with a different default encoding.

The next backup should contain the right characters. Let me know if it doesn’t!

> The next backup should contain the right characters.

It did contain the right characters, as you predicted.
Thank you!
