this please just use the command line.

You should use UTF8 on the server, there should be a setting for it in

Is this on the server or client?  We need the versions of both.

> es_ES.iso88591
> es_ES.iso8859152euro
> spanish

What OS are you running?  You should install the UTF8 codepage as well
to assist in translation.
