Hi there,

What you could do is to set the default character set for your MySQL server. You could do that by adding the following to your MySQL config:

default-character-set = utf8

Do not for get to restart the MySQL service after the change.

If you are still getting the error, feel free to share the full error here.

Best, Bobby
