For TYPO3 4.7: Update reference to $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['forceCharset']
|Priority:||Should have||Due date:|
The manual mentions the option
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['forceCharset']. However, this option has been removed in TYPO3 4.7.
Make sure to update the manual accordingly.
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['forceCharset']is set to the value "utf-8", the user should just remove this line from his localconf.php.
- All values other than "utf-8" will prevent TYPO3 from running and will trigger an error. If another value is used, the user should proceed to the Update Wizard in the TYPO3 Install Tool to update his configuration. Since the backend and the database will communicate "thinking" that they use the charset UTF-8, he must make sure that they really do. Otherwise he will create a charset mix in his database, which will be hard to fix later. Our Wiki page on UTF-8 conversion has more information on how to fix an affected environment accordingly: http://wiki.typo3.org/UTF-8_support
