When we will require MySQL 5.5.3 in Piwik, it would be desired to make our database use utf8mb4 collation. This would solve some possibly weird issues and in general, is a best practise for properly managing unicode characters in MySQL.

Background information utf8mb4

This was originally suggested by @EgiX who recommends us to implement this improvement sooner rather than later. Requires MySQL > 5.5.3 - discussion to increase MySQL requirement covered in https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/9107

:+1: for this.

Just switched to MySQL 5.7 and it works fine with the new utf8mb4.

Also they plan to make this value the default in 5.8 maybe
