After to updated PHPMyAdmin the default collation has been set to utf8mb4_general_ci instead the old default collation utf8_general_ci. As I do not have any need to use utf8mb4_general_ci I would like to restore utf8_general_ci as default.
Looking on my database configuration I have this:
default-character-set = utf8 character-set-server = utf8 collation-server = utf8_general_ci character_set_server = utf8 collation_server = utf8_general_ci
Also I have added these lines to the file config.inc.php in PHPMyAdmin to try to make it work.
$cfg['DefaultCharset'] = 'utf8_general_ci'; $cfg['DefaultConnectionCollation'] = 'utf8_general_ci';
However, even when all is set to utf8_general_ci on the config files still I can see on the main page utf8mb4_general_ci as defaul Server connection collation. Is there something it could be done to set the collation to utf8_general_ci instead?
