When I use Apache 2.2.14 + PHP 5.3 standalone and request such script directly by name it doesn't start (at least with mod_php), but in log files I see something like:
[error] [client] PHP Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required 'E:/www/test2/\xd0\x9d\xd0\xbe\xd0\xb2\xd0\xbe\xd1\x81\xd1\x82\xd0\xb8.php' (include_path='.;C:\\php5\\pear') in Unknown on line 0, referer:

I discovered this is because PHP doesn't translate UTF-8 filename passed from Apache to coding (Unicode-16?) used by Windows, and thus can't open it. It works perfectly on Linux as Apache, PHP & Linux filesystem use same UTF-8...

Having this feature is useful for creating SEO-optimized sites with URLs containing keywords. I don't ask to fix Unicode in general, but at least for Windows, where it's known Apache will receive link as UTF-8 and pass it as is to PHP, we can translate it into correct encoding before calling system functions. I guess this is couple lines of code for Windows build.

Reproduce code:
1. take any .php script and rename it to any name with UTF-8 2 byte+ symbols. I used russian ???????.php.
2. Configure Apache on Windows to use PHP as module (loadmodule)
3. Try to request this script from browser

Expected result:
Script won't load with 500 code. However, it runs when it's name has only ASCII characters.

Actual result:
[error] [client] PHP Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required 'E:/www/test2/\xd0\x9d\xd0\xbe\xd0\xb2\xd0\xbe\xd1\x81\xd1\x82\xd0\xb8.php' (include_path='.;C:\\php5\\pear') in Unknown on line 0, referer:

The bug is still present in php 5.3.5 and apache 2.2.17.
(Both are latest stable versions).
OS is Win7 64 bit (php and apache are 32-bit).

There is already a feature request for Unicode Filesystem support. And no, it is 
not implemeneted yet.

A note to developers:
Apache has api for path manipulation:
Note function apr_filepath_encoding() which retrieves current path encoding.
Also note win32 function GetShortPathName() which converts any valid long pathname to 8.3 ascii format.

Hi pajoye.

Maybe this bug can be fixed without such complex things as Unicode Filesystem?
(See my comment above - there is api already in both apache and win32)

That's only part of the problem, the top of the iceberg.
