Hi, I recently change my server on window from AppServ 2.2.0 (http://www.appservnetwork.com/) to Bigapache (http://www.bigapache.org/). I got a problem about Encoding that all default encoding of html (<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=big5">) can't function correctly. I don't know where is the problem. i need to use header("Content-Type: text/html;charset=big5"); to avoid users change the encoding from browser themselves. How do i fix it?
