OJS dont't display character set in UTF-8

The blank page almost certainly indicates a PHP error. Check your server’s error log for details. If the error message describes a UTF-8 encoding problem, this may be the right place to discuss it. If the error message describes something else, try searching for another thread in the forum or creating a new topic specific to your error message.

changed collation to latin1_swedish_ci
and did this to my latin1 database, now it works

; Localization Settings ;


; Default locale
locale = en_US

; Client output/input character set
client_charset = utf-8
connection_charset = latin1
database_charset = latin1
charset_normalization = Off

Hi @nelsonf17,

It would be better at some point to transcode everything into UTF-8 – but as long as your settings are consistent for now, OJS will continue to work.
