    Hey, default charset of cPanel is iso-8859-1? How to change it? I tried with AddDefaultCharset in httpd.conf but not working.

    Note, cPanel/WHM/Webmail pages are not served by Apache, so Apache settings will have no impact.

    If I recall correctly, in the language file, there should be a charset= line where the character set is specified. This will affect HTTP headers as well.

    Firefox has an unusual way of handling character sets. You may want to join the theme developers list at:
