Bug tracker has issue with UTF-8 and ASCII-8BIT after transition to ruby 1.9.6 and the latest stable redmine
The web site is experiencing an issue with character encoding. The core cause for this is that we moved from ruby 1.8.7 (slow, old) to ruby 1.9.3 (much faster and safer) recently.
At the moment we thought we had fixed this by flushing the cache from old page fragments that had ASCII vs UTF. That worked on the main site and ought to have worked on the bug tracker.
At the moment I cannot reproduce the error myself with chrome or firefox. The issue appears on #1039 and at least two people can see it. Here is the error we see in the logs:
ActionView::Template::Error (incompatible character encodings: UTF-8 and ASCII-8BIT): 78: 79: <p><strong><%=l(:field_description)%></strong></p> 80: <div class="wiki"> 81: <%= textilizable @issue, :description, :attachments => @issue.attachments %> 82: </div> 83: </div> 84: <% end %> app/views/issues/show.html.erb:81:in `_app_views_issues_show_html_erb__2231636365521857380_58841960' app/controllers/issues_controller.rb:121:in `block (2 levels) in show' app/controllers/issues_controller.rb:118:in `show'
this issue 1039 does not appear to have attachments, so one might conclude that the problem is with the description?
I edited it but it does not seem to help me either see the issue or help others NOT get it.
.. still investigating.
