Your server needs to support german locales, please ask your server admin which locales are installed. One of de, german, de_DE, de_DE@UTF-8, de_DE@ISO-8859-1 is required.

Maybe you should add de_DE@ISO-8859-15, that is de_DE@ISO-8859-1 with the Euro sign.

We have a de_DE@euro locale, shouldn't that be the same?

As far as I know it is the same, but for example "iconv -l" does not know anything with "euro".
