Hello,

I have a cPanel&WHM version 86.0.16. I have a user who install Moodle on his website.
And he send installation error:

"
The current setup of MySQL or MariaDB is using 'utf8'. This character set does not support
four byte characters which include some emoji. Trying to use these characters will result in an
error when updating a record, and any information being sent to the database will be lost.
Please consider changing your settings to 'utf8mb4'. See the documentation for full details.
"
Is it safe to change character set to utf8mb4 ?

Can user via phpMyAdmin change character set for his database only?

Thank you!

Best regards,
Elizabeta
