why do you think that you need to do any conversion at all?

that preg_replace looks terrifying! how did you come by it? i'm immediately
suspicious that this is the problem.

i googled the code and found people claiming that it translates window-1255
to utf8 (2004, dubious) and iso-8859-1 to utf-8 (2005, dubious).

if you know that the browser is sending the GET variable 'folder' in a known
encoding other than utf8, why not convert it with mb_convert_encoding or

alternatively, force the user agent to send it in utf8 by sending the form
as utf 8 (send header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8'), and use
accept-charset="utf-8" in the form tag) and don't convert. then you can
avoid all conversions.

i have no idea. but i imagine it is sufficient to use ini_set().
