Ruby on Rails on Passenger and Redmine: incompatible character encodings: UTF-8 and ASCII-8BIT

After migrating Redmine to a new server, I've encountered such an error:

ActionView::Template::Error (incompatible character encodings: UTF-8 and ASCII-8BIT):
    3: <div class="box tabular settings">
    4: <p><%= setting_select :ui_theme, Redmine::Themes.themes.collect {|t| [t.name, t.id]}, :blank => :label_default, :label => :label_theme %></p>

My database and all my configs were set to UTF8, so it looked like the problem was somewhere in Apache. Partialy I was right. To fix this issue, you need to add following lines:

export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

to /etc/apache2/envvars and then just restart server:

# /etc/apache2/envvars
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
