MySQL Collation

For my fresh installation of ubuntu 22 and mysql 8.0.31.
It is requested to have Collation as utf8_general_ci, but it is not available…
Is it okay to use utf8mb4_general_ci or utf8mb3_general_ci ?
Best regards

Hi cphyan, good question, we are looking at changing from utf8_general_ci to utf8mb4_general_ci, given that the original collation has been deprecated in recent versions of linux. I think if you install with utf8mb4_general_ci set it should be okay, I haven’t tested it myself, but I believe MySQL will handle the new collation internally. Please do let me know if you run into any issues using this during installation.

Thanks for the clarification Sandra :slight_smile:
Will let you know if I bump into anything related.
