I upload my chinese file from my local disk.After upload,I see my chinese file name has changed (like _e_e_.doc),and i can't open it or use it.
How can I fix it?
ps: This promble torment withÂ course group developers of Kaohsiung city in my country-TaiwanÂ for a long time!
From what I understand, the reason that the file name has changed is that when you upload the file using multi-byte characters (Chinese, in this case) Moodle changes the characters to regular ascii format. This is to prevent injection of characters that might allow someone to hack into the system.
There is, however, a plan to use UTF-8 in future versions and I believe that this will solve the problem. A good place to start for reference is here:
I believe that this migration has started for inclusion in version 1.6. In the meantime, you would need to change the filename to regular ascii.
Hope that this helps.
There is more discussion here about mobile phones and the migration to UTF-8:
