I have a problem with the char encoding in yii.
If I create a new webapp:
./Yii-framework/framework/yiic webapp MyTest
Then go to /protected/views/layouts/main.php and change the footer to a text with an utf8 character, for example
<div id="footer"> Cópyrîgth <br /> </div>
Refresh the page and everything is ok. Nice!
And then I try to log in with an utf8 character in the username, for example ádmin, it crashes saying:
Error 500 htmlspecialchars(): Invalid multibyte sequence in argument
So I checked this article about unicode in yii
and then I went to /protected/config/main.php and added this line at the start:
header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8');
Retrying the same login again it works (doesn’t crash) but now the footer is broken and shows:
I’ve tried other combinations like explained in the “Unicode in yii” article but none of them make both things work at the same time.
Any ideas for solving this problem?
Note: I can’t change to the php.ini file.
I also tried the AddDefaultCharset UTF-8 option in the .htaccess file and put it in the folder at the /MyTest/ is that the correct folder referred in the article as: your DocumentRoot ?
