I have alt-php installed, 5.4 is the default/native version. Within WHM, php configuration, I have the default_charset set to utf-8 On all the sites using the native php version, phpinfo() shows iso-8859-1 as the default_charset. It also shows that the loaded configuration file is /usr/local/lib/php.ini which has utf-8 set as the default_charset. There is no custom php.ini file being used. I can't figure out why it won't take utf-8 as the charset, not sure if it's related to alt-php or not.
