thanks Vernon,

I have tried putting DefaultNetCCSID 37 in the httpd.conf but when I start
the server instance it fails with this in the joblog...

Message . . . . : CCSID value is not correct.

Cause . . . . . : CCSID value 37 is not correct. The reason code is 3.

Reason codes and their meanings follow: 01 -- The -netccsid startup value

did not specify a valid ASCII CCSID. 02 -- The -fsccsid startup value did

not specify a valid EBCDIC CCSID. 03 -- The DefaultNetCCSID directive did

not specify a valid ASCII CCSID. 04 -- The DefaultFsCCSID directive did
specify a valid EBCDIC CCSID. 05 -- The CCSID value specified on the

CHGHTTPA command is not a valid ASCII CCSID. 08 -- The CGIJobCCSID
did not specify a valid EBCDIC CCSID. Recovery . . . : Correct the
value and start the HTTP server again.

37 isn't a valid EBCDIC CCSID?

I believe there are attributes that can be set for HTTP server
instances. In the web-based admin client, in General server properties,
I think, advanced properties, I see client and server CCSIDs can be set,
optionally. Here is a bit of the help text you can see there -

*Note:*The server can obtain CCSID information from several sources:
1) from what is passed in on the STRTCPSVR command. 2) from what is
specified in the HTTP Server (powered by Apache) configuration file.
3) from what is specified in the CHGHTTPA global attributes. 4) from
the QCCSID system value.
I think one must be very aware of what will happen if you set these.

There are directives in the httpd.conf file - I just saw this -
DefaultNetCCSID 1208 - in one of the setups on one of our IBM i's.

when a server instance is started, how does the job determine the ccsid
be used? And how can it be overridden?

It's a bit of a mystery how HTTP server Job CCSIDs are set because IBM
decides that. IBM could set the CCSID explicitly on the SBMJOB command,
use the QCCSID system value, or use the CCSID of the QTHMHTTP User
