Hi robertgarrigos,

I'm having problems to get utf8mb4 support on a mysql 8 installation.

I'm assuming you already checked the variables in either a mysql shell or in phpmyadmin:

[mysqld]
innodb_large_prefix=true
innodb_file_format=barracuda
innodb_file_per_table=true

...and they fit.

Is it a website you migrated from another server, or is it a site you upgraded from Drupal?

Is it the conversion to utf8mb4, that fails or is it the charset for a new install?

Already fixed. Mysql8 doesn't need any setting on my.cnf. Once '$database_charset = 'utf8mb4';' is in settings.php, everything works fine. I was just looking at the wrong site.....
