PHP move_uploaded_file not OS encoding aware


Recommended Posts

Does anybody have an idea to workaround this PHP Bug?



Files with filenames containing non-ascii characters like german umlauts get destroyed when saved with move_uploaded_file(). The UTF-8 special characters get translated byte-wise into CP1251 characters when determining the Windows filenames thus destroying the original special characters.
