Character sets in PHP
There is a character encoding setting inside of your php.ini file. By default, this is set to the standard Latin encoding (ISO-8859). If you would like to encode your page with different characters, like Arabic or Hindi, you will need to change this.
Most character sets will display correctly with UTF-8 encoding. If you're using an Asian character set, you may need to select a different encoding standard. To find out specific information about which character encoding will display your characters correctly Click Here.You can find your php.ini file in this directory:
/public_html/php.iniTo change the character encoding in your php.ini file, find the following line and input your preferred character encoding. In the example below, UTF-8 is the character set.
default_charset = "UTF-8"Note: By default, the default_charset option is commented out. Be sure to delete the leading semi-colon so it does not look like this:
;default_charset = "UTF-8"
