garbage chars in msword file in SIMPLE(php, mysql, apache, SUSE) package
we are using SIMPLE package for virtual learning.
it has a section where student or staff can upload text, msword documents, pdf, jpg and html files. all type of files working fine instead of msword doc files.
it is working fine on windows with default xampp installation.
on opensuse 10 uploading goes without any error but when the same file is downloaded it ask for type of encoding. no matter what kind of encoding is selected it produce just garbage characters .
files are stored in mysql databases.
as it is working on windows machine but not on linux so it may be something to do with apache or php on linux. please help
