Recently I've installed PHP7 on my MAMP and updated to newest version of WordPress. Every time I do a new site all my tables are using collation
I have tried setting
define('DB_COLLATE', 'utf8_general_ci'); in my wp-config.php which worked fine until Gravity Forms ignored it and created all it's tables in
I've seen that if
utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci is available it will use that so is there a surefire way to stop WP using that collation? Can I just remove that collation as I am having to run 10 ALTER TABLE queries before I can port the database over to staging/live server?
