  • Applies to:
  • Confixx Professional 3


Umlauts are displayed incorrectly in Parallels Confixx UI on SuSE 11.x


Default SuSE 11.x encoding for MySQL connections is UTF-8, but Confixx assumes it’s latin1.


  1. Download setMySqlConnectionEncoding.patch to a directory on the Parallels Confixx host (for example, /root/).
  2. Go to the Parallels Confixx installation directory (by default, it is /root/confixx) and execute the following command:
    patch -p0 < /root/setMySqlConnectionEncoding.patch
  3. Go to the Parallels Confixx www directory (by default, it is /var/www/confixx or /home/www/confixx) and execute:
    patch -p1 < /root/setMySqlConnectionEncoding.patch
