invalid multibyte character

Hiello everybody,

I have a shiny app that works well in local. I am trying to deploy it to but, unfortunately, it does not work there. The log is the next.
Hoping any help. I would be gratefully.

Shiny doesn't like non ASCII characters, try to avoid characters like these "áéíóüúñ", We can't provide you any more specific help with out seen your code, consider providing a reproducible example


Andrés, thanks a lot,

It is difficult, because script messages are in spanish and there are some words with accents and "ñ", but I'm tryng to change them.
Thank you very much for your speedy response.

Yo también tengo aplicaciones shiny con texto en español y a aveces tengo el mismo problema, no se exactamente a que se debe pero creo que tiene que ver con la configuración locale del servidor, dado que usas no creo que puedas hacer mucho en el lado del servidor.
Tal vez si modificas explícitamente el locale al inicio antes de que arranque tu aplicación podría ayudar

Bueno, pues de momento lo intento con sinónimos, dado que no se nada del 'locale'.
Gracias de nuevo.

You can try putting this at the beginning of your app.R file or global.R file just after calling library(shiny)


I'm tried you have said and I get the same error....
Thanks a lot, in any case.
