Using InnoDB and utf8mb4 | Forum

For those of you that need to support special characters you really need to change your Oxwall Database collation to utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci    


Also if you want a better DB engine change your oxwall DB to use InnoDB rather than MyISAM


I changed my oxwall install and have not yet noticed any issues.  But please do a full backup first just in case you do have an issue.
