I have updated to Matomo 4.0.5.
The update, including the database updates, went fine, but when attempting to convert the DB to use utf8mb4, by running console core:convert-to-utf8mb4, I just get a “Your database does not support utf8mb4” message.
Looking at the script, it seems this has to do with utf8mb4 not being the default character set of our MySQL db - version 5.5.29, on RHEL.
I have tried setting the following parameters in my.cnf manually (and restarted), but without luck:
character-set-server = utf8mb
Is there anything else I should have a look at, or is this an issue with our (old) version of MySQL?
Many thanks for any suggestions!
