After 2 years of absence, because the Matomo website was crippled on my webserver, I gave it a new try.
Today I installed Matomo version 3.13.2 and hoped for the best.
But alas: again the Matomo-site crashes on the same error as 2 years ago!
“An error occurred. Cannot connect to the database:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  Server sent charset unknown to the client.
Please, report to the developers”
Does anyone know any specific details on why the site is crashing again?
What can I do to solve this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.
