Description

Doing an upgrade of an 18.x tiki (using the console command didn't work at all) i am presented with this big red error box:

 Encoding Issue

Something is wrong with the database encoding. The database has UTF-8 as default encoding but some tables in the database have a different collation, utf8_unicode_ci. Converting to UTF-8 may solve this but may also make matters worse. You should investigate what happened or only proceed with backups.

etc...


This doesn't make sense because utf8_unicode_ci is a UTF-8 collation.

Solution

Sorry about this everyone, it was a local effect when testing a database which i have previously upgraded. Even though i deleted all the table in it, the database collation was still set to utf8mb4_unicode_ci, so the warning was saying that the tables' collations were different from this - maybe it could be better worded but nothing to fix here i think, and probably won't happen in "normal" operation.

Apologies for the noise (but it was a big scary warning! eeklol)

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
