Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress 3 UTF-8 file names = trouble?

  • Hi guys,

    I have noticed with at least three websites now something that I at first thought was an apache issue. But I have changed my mind about that – it seems to be a WordPress issue, because that’s the only thing which has changed in all cases.

    What happens is that a website which runs an older version of WordPress loses its ability to display files uploaded with international characters such as æøå after I upgrade to the latest version.

    What is going on here and how can I fix it?

  • I’ve got the exact same problem!

    If I use for example a video file “Caça.MP4” in the filename and I upload it gets written to the files folder as “caça” (checking it using FTP). Checking the file name using SSH it reads “ca\303\247a.mp4”.

    Now the strange part, if I access it directly through the browser usingça.mp4 it works! But if I try to play it using a flash player, it doesn’t work!

    What can be wrong??
