All images with diacritics in name disappeared after some update

Jirka Dl (talkcontribs)

Some time ago all images, using any characters with diacritics in name disappeared, images with standard characters work normally - I have 3 instalations of mediawiki on our server and it happens in all of them:

Mediawiki 1.16.4, Apache/2.2.17 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.17 OpenSSL/1.0.0a PHP/5.2.17

There is probably some coding problem when storing the images, because images are stored on server, but with wrong names. For example: "Letňany.jpg" is stored as "Letňany.JPG".

Thank you for any ideas.

This is a known bug, the only solution currently is to stick to Latin-1 on Windows.

Thank you for reply - this was the last impulse to migrate to linux - it was quite easy and now everything works :-)

Actually, the problem is not in MediaWiki or Windows, it's in PHP's lack of proper Unicode support - you will have the same problem on Unix systems that don't assume file APIs to be UTF-8 (luckily, recent mainstream Linux does assume so). But in any case - yes, Linux is much better for MediaWiki.
