5 Below you have the configuration for UTF-8. Note that this is valid for XWiki 1.0 b5 and above. Easier configuration might be provided for upcoming releases.
6
7 = XWiki encoding =
8
9 Change the charset enconding in these XWiki files:
10
11 * **web.xml**: locate the filter class ##com.xpn.xwiki.web.SetCharacterEncodingFilter## and change it to UTF-8. It should look like this:(((
12 {{code language="xml"}}
13 <filter>
14 <filter-name>Set Character Encoding</filter-name>
15 <filter-class>com.xpn.xwiki.web.SetCharacterEncodingFilter</filter-class>
16 <init-param>
17 <param-name>encoding</param-name>
18 <param-value>UTF-8</param-value>
19 </init-param>
20 </filter>
21 {{/code}}
22 )))
23 * **xwiki.cfg** : locate the line containing ##xwiki.encoding## and change it to look like this:(((
24 {{code}}
25 xwiki.encoding = UTF-8
26 {{/code}}
27 )))
28
29 = HTML encoding =
30
31 Change the HTML encoding in XWiki through Administration ~-~-> Look & Feel ~-~-> Page Elements ~-~-> HTTP Meta Info.
32
33 {{warning}}
34 The HTTP Meta Info section was located in Administration ~--> Presentation in older versions of XWiki.
35 {{/warning}}
36
37 Inside this textbox locate the **Content-type** meta tag and make it look like this, changing the encoding to UTF-8
38
39 {{code language="xml"}}
40 <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
41 {{/code}}
42
43 {{warning}}
44 This step is not needed if you have the following. Instead that line can be left alone.
45 {{/warning}}
46
47 {{code language="xml"}}
48 <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=$!xwiki.encoding" />
49 {{/code}}
50
51 = Hibernate configuration =
52
53 Add the following lines in the ##hibernate.cfg.xml## file:
54
55 {{code language="xml"}}
56 <property name="connection.useUnicode">true</property>
57 <property name="connection.characterEncoding">UTF-8</property>
58 {{/code}}
59
60 = MySQL configuration =
61
62 It's common practice that the MySQL configuration file, in *nix systems is located in $$/etc/mysql/my.cnf##:##
63 Starting with MySQL 5.5.3 the option 'default-character-set=utf8' is deprecated under [mysql]
64
65 {{code}}
66 [client]
67 default-character-set=utf8
68 [mysqld]
69 default-character-set=utf8
70 character-set-server = utf8
71 collation-server = utf8_bin
72 {{/code}}
73
74 **After 5.5.3**
75
76 {{code}}
77 [client]
78 default-character-set=utf8
79 [mysqld]
80 character-set-server = utf8
81 collation-server = utf8_bin
82 {{/code}}
83
84
85
86 = Servlet Container =
87
88 == Jetty ==
89
90 {{code}}
91 echo off
92 rem set LANG=fr_FR.ISO8859-1
93 set LANG=en_US.UTF-8
94 set JETTY_PORT=8080
95 set JETTY_HOME=.
96 java %JAVA_OPTS% -Djetty.port=%JETTY_PORT% -Djetty.home=%JETTY_HOME% -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -jar %JETTY_HOME%/start.jar
97 {{/code}}
98
99 Instead of the config system variable LANG you can use JVM properties.
100
101 {{code}}
102 -Duser.language=en
103 -Duser.country=US
104 {{/code}}
105
106 in server startup script.
107
108 == Tomcat ==
109
110 In order to enable UTF-8 in tomcat, you have to add
111
112 {{code}}
113 URIEncoding="UTF-8"
114 {{/code}}
115
116 to each connector enabled/used in ##conf/server.xml##. For example the non-SSL HTTP Connector should read:
117
118 {{code language="xml"}}
119 <Connector port="8080" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
120 maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
121 enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
122 connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true"
123 URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>
124 {{/code}}
125
126 {{warning}}
127 In case you're using AJP to connect Tomcat and httpd, make sure you add this attribute to the AJP connector.
128 {{/warning}}
129
130 == [[Glassfish>>http://glassfish.java.net/]] ==
131
132 To run XWiki with UTF-8 in Glassfish you will need to recreate the **xwiki-enterprise.war** file and do a change to the glassfish config. First, in the Administration GUI under Domain => General => Locale enter **en_US.UTF-8**.
133
134 Now you will need to add all the aforementioned changes from this document to the files in the war file, create a new warfile, and deploy that one to your glassfish installation. This is required due to the fact that Glassfish will not accept changes to a deployed web.xml file. So you need to deploy a ready changed **web.xml** file inside your war file because all subsequent changes to the deployed **web.xml** file in the filesystem are totally ignored.
135
136 Create a new directory that we will use as a temporary place to edit our war file:
137
138 {{code}}
139 mkdir xwikitmp
140 {{/code}}
141
142 Unpack the warfile:
143
144 {{code}}
145 cd xwikitemp;jar xvf ../xwiki-enterprise-web-1.5.war
146 {{/code}}
147
148 Edit the files as mentioned in the beginning of this article:
149
150 * wiki.cfg
151 * web.xml
152 * hibernate.cfg.xml
153
154 Now let's create a new warfile which contains all the changes:
155
156 {{code}}
157 jar cvf ../xwiki-enterprise-web-local-1.5.war .
158 {{/code}}
159
160 Now you can deploy your new .war file to Glassfish and it will have all the changes in it and wll be correctly deployed.
161
162 = System config =
163
164 Add the following variables to your system:
165
166 {{code}}
167 LANG = en_US.UTF-8
168 {{/code}}

172 = OpenOffice import =
173
174 If OpenOffice import turns characters into question marks or HTML Entity you need to edit **registrymodifications.xcu** located in user profile used by the OO server by adding:
175
176 {{code}}
177 <item
178 oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/Filter/HTML/Export"><prop
179 oor:name="Encoding" oor:op="fuse"><value>76</value></prop></item>
180 {{/code}}
