Better to find it now than after everything's zipped and going out the door.

Edited:
A 'save variable' got missed when adding the charset choice to Setup.pl - fixed in SVN 1483. Otherwise Settings_Main does save the charset choice on both my online testbeds and off line new install.

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

YaBB 2.6.1
Setup.pl issue

In the past few days I have installed clean twice from SVN builds 1480 & 1481, once on Admin Test for 'new Codex' and this AM for 'newhome' on the main Yabbforum.com server.

The first time I suspected I may have missed something with the character set choice in the Setup screen. The reason was that I was pretty sure I had chosen ISO-8859-1, when I went to Forum Settings to enable TZ user choices, the 'character set' choice was displaying UTF-8. As the Time Zone setting was on the same page, I just changed it to ISO-8859-1. I didn't bother to check Settings.pm.  I was in the 'I need to see what happens with the Codex Data' mode, not let's go bug-hunting.

This morning I patched Perl on the Main server, so I could make sure things were going to be AOK. OK, time to install the latest YaBB. I got a snaphost and extracted it, put it all in place and chmodded & chowned as needed. Setup.pl 'should just run'.
YAY! it did! So I was careful to set the character set to ISO-8859-1 on the second screen. Then we got to what I wanted to see - the Perl Modules -- ALL THERE! YAY! again. got the green light on folders & permissions! Now gotta change PW and get TZ set and enable UCP TZ..

UGH - Character Set id on UTF-8 again.

This time, no save settings - open Settings.pm
Code (Perl)
Select All

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
