Changing DefaultServerLocale always resets to "en" on server startup


i hope you can help me.
I have configured the value “DefaultServerLocale”: “de” and “DefaultClientLocale”: “de” in my config.json
But every time i start the server it is reset to “en”.
The same happen if i change the options in admin_console.

Other options worked - like Email Settings or SqlSettings.


Hi @lolman88,

What Mattermost server version are you on?

There was recently a bug related to this issue and it was fixed in v5.8 release:

I recommend upgrading your server version in case you’re on an older version.


i am on the version 5.8.0
I use a windows server and followed the instructions from:

C:\mattermost\bin>mattermost version
Version: 5.8.0
Build Number: 5.8.0
Build Date: Fri Feb 15 23:00:16 UTC 2019


im also on 5.8.0 and experience this. ubuntu server though


Hi all, I realized we already have a bug ticket open to fix this:
