/ap2-encoding, Non-ascii filename interoperability
20021209, Package name:
ap22-encoding-20021209, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
This module improves non-ascii filename interoperability of apache
It seems many WebDAV clients send filename in its platform-local
encoding. But since mod_dav expects everything, even HTTP request
line, to be in UTF-8, this causes an interoperability problem.
I believe this is a future issue for specification (RFC?) to
standardize encoding used in HTTP request-line and HTTP header, but
life would be much easier if mod_dav (and others) can handle various
encodings sent by clients, TODAY. This module does just that.
This module adds following directives: EncodingEngine, SetServerEncoding,
AddClientEncoding, DefaultClientEncoding, and NormalizeUsername.
Note by maintainer:
It also solves the problem with the "hostname\\username"
way of authentication that Windows machines do when they
attach to a DAV server. See the use of the NormalizeUsername
