Hi all !

I don't understand why my WHM panel set his default language to French.
I'm french, but the traduction is ... not good ...

I want to set English language by default for WHM only !

I can't find any configuration option.
I've RVskin setup, I don't know is this is the problem .


I'm able to change the language by delete this file :
Code:
/var/cpanel/locale/fr.cdb
But, few time later (I don't know how many, probaby after the next update cron of cPanel/rvskin/etc...) "fr.cdb" reappears...


Have you any solution ?


Best regards,
Hugo

Hello :)

The locale system should not modify the language for Web Host Manager. This likely occurs from the use of a third-party product such as RVSkin. Please note that RVSkin is not developed by cPanel. You may want to consult with their support team if the issue is related to RVSkin itself.

Thank you.

Hi,

That's the answer of RVskin ....

Hi,

Sorry for late reply. We don't support language display in WHM interface, but only RVSkin Manager in WHM and cPanel interface with RVSkin theme. Where's in your question?

If you set language display from WHM (root) >> RVSkin Manager >> Language >> Default Language , the setting will take force to cPanel interface with RVSkin theme.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
I don't know what I should do for resolve my problem...
I've never try to setup french language !


Best regards,
Hugo

To update, this was the result of the following setting under the "System" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings":

"Server Locale"

Changing the default language to English on this setting has resolved the issue. Note that a language can also be selected before logging into Web Host Manager, with a selection of languages below the login box.

Thank you.

Hi, I'm having the exact same problem but my Server Locale is OK (english).

After a couple of years of english being the default language, after an update, the WHM is in spanish (very poor translation). I did not change any language configuration.

As the other poster said, if I delete es.cdb it works but I don't know if it is a good solution.

Please advice. Thank you.

Have you installed any third-party applications such as RVSkin before this started? Does the issue reoccur if you update cPanel via the "/scripts/upcp" command?

Thank you.
