Ubuntu Locale Error
I have pretty much always had locale errors on my Ubuntu servers. I figured it was probably due to having it set for US English with a Japanese keyboard or something. Well, I finally got around to fixing the problem.
Here are the errors I was getting:
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale (“C”).
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
Here is how I fixed it:
sudo nano /etc/default/locale
Add the following line:
I’m using en_US so this is what I used. Match yours to the results you get with a “locale” command
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
The above may not actually be required. But finish up with a restart:
sudo shutdown -r now
That fixed both my home server and the Moodle server I run at work. (Both running Ubuntu 14.04)
