Description (last modified by Tim Graham)

From https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.8/howto/deployment/wsgi/modwsgi/ the suggested hints within "Fixing UnicodeEncodeError for file uploads" don't overcome the issue with UnicodeEncodeError on CentOS 7.

Configuration is:

[OS]
CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)

[Apache]
Name        : httpd
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 2.4.6
Release     : 45.el7.centos.4

[Mod_wsgi]
Name        : mod_wsgi
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 3.4
Release     : 12.el7_0

Setting those variables into /etc/sysconfig/httpd

export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"

doesn't affect the result of

import sys
sys.getdefaultencoding()
'ascii'

and the traceback is

Traceback: File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/core/handlers/base.py" in get_response 132. response = wrapped_callback(request, *callback_args, **callback_kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/contrib/auth/decorators.py" in _wrapped_view 22. return view_func(request, *args, **kwargs) File "/home/geonode/geonode/geonode/layers/views.py" in layer_upload 174. out['errors'] = str(error) Exception Type: UnicodeEncodeError at /layers/upload Exception Value: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe8' in position 3: ordinal not in range(128) Request information: GET: No GET data POST: charset = u'UTF-8'
