I converted the database from utf8 to utf8mb4

After I change from core/database.php

array(PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND => 'SET NAMES utf8;', to utf8mb4

the website is running hard and many features such as logging(parsererror), chat does not work(does not display messages and people, loads to infinity, no errors).  

it doesn't even work if I change it back, but I have backup

How fix ?

parseerror is overall error, when receive ajax request and this response isnt in json format, sometimes when you have debug mode on, you must use browser developer tools and check ajax request and response, you cant find there exactly what error you have

you can hire me if you want profesional help, then contact via pm with me

Also remember folks that just changing the DB is only 1 part of this, there are other places that may require the change as well such as the files themselves.  One of these is in the init.php file in the ow_includes folder.
