Tag Archives: CentOS 6 and locale error

locale error in CentOS 6 !

Recently saw the issue in newly build CentOS6 VMs ( For me it was Virtuozzo based VMs ) :

-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (UTF-8)

Saw this error even after installing cPanel in the VPS.

This warning popped up every time you ran a command in shell, though it did not cause any issues

The fix was to run the following command :

localedef --no-archive -i en_US -f UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8

Should be good now !
