I have set into config.php the $config_title into a Greek name:
  $config_title = "ΤΕΣΤ";

I notice that the name inst displayed correct i use utf-8 as charset check the page source:

    <meta name='viewport' content='width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0' />
            <link rel='stylesheet' href='/pt/html/vendor/foundation.min.css' />
      <link rel='stylesheet' href='/pt/html/default.css' />
      <script src='/pt/html/vendor/jquery-1.9.1.js'></script>
      <script src='/pt/html/vendor/jquery-ui.js'></script>

This is most likely down to the character set that your text editor saved the file as after adding a non-ASCII character.

If you open your config.php file in your usual text editor, then go to "Save As..." and on the Save As... dialog you should see a "Character Encoding" drop-down box - it sounds like it may have been saved in ISO-8859-1, so if you see that currently selected change to UTF-8 and that should be all it is.

Further, if your text editor shows alternative versions of each character encoding, e.g.


...always use the NO-BOM option. "BOM" is "Byte Order Marking" and is intended for human readable files, not code. When included in code, it can generate output prematurely which can restrict the use of things like header() calls later in the code!
