Description

The autoindex page uses spaces to line up columns. But it counts bytes, not characters, so multi-byte characters throw it off.

Example:

Index of /

../
hello                                              26-Apr-2013 00:56                   0
mon_frère                                         26-Apr-2013 00:57                   0

(This is a well-known problem in PHP, if it helps: http://php.net/manual/en/book.mbstring.php see mb_strlen())

Solution: use string functions that support multi-byte Unicode. See PHP docs above.

You have to set charset using the http://nginx.org/r/charset directive.
