Utf-8 Character Encoding Problem

by admin


HTML files are typically served as text/html. The character encoding (or ‘charset’) of this file is UTF-8. If the page is not served as utf-8, there occurs character encoding problem.


If the page is cached, the page may not be called as utf-8.



WPFC adds charset rule automatically but in some servers <FilesMatch> does not work so you need to try <LocationMatch> as below.

You need to add the following rule into htaccess to serve the files with the extension .html as UTF-8.

    AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

Internal Server Error (500)

If you get Internal Server Error (500), you need to remove <LocationMatch> and add only the following rule.

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
