setlocale & strftime

if I host following PHP script on Windows it is working fine i.e. output is  "Donnerstag, 04. Dezember 2003" as I want

setlocale(LC_TIME , 'de_DE@euro', 'de_DE', 'de', 'ge');
echo strftime("%A, %d. %B %Y");

But when I host it on Red Hat Linux output is following-

Thursday, 04. December 2003

Any help?

because locale naming is different on redhat and windows.

try with
setlocale(LC_TIME , 'de@euro', 'de', 'de', 'ge');

also check if
language_country exists in the /usr/share/locale/locale.alias

I don't have redhat, but check if the country is in /usr/share/locale/locale.gen, if not, it hasn't been generated.

The information was put across as Debian Related, and my server where I tested it is also Debian.

I don't know how it applies, if at all to RedHat.

What version of RedHat are you using?

You'll probably have to get the admin to install a de_DE locale RPM.

I have already installed it. I wrote a simple C program to test it. It was working fine but for PHP it is not working.

I have PHP 4.2

putenv("LANG=de_DE");
putenv("LANGUAGE=de_DE");
putenv("LC_ALL=de_DE");
setlocale(LC_ALL, "de_DE", "german");
setlocale(LC_TIME , 'de_DE@euro', 'de_DE', 'de', 'ge');
echo strftime("%A, %d. %B %Y");
