Support » Plugin: Duplicator - WordPress Migration Plugin » Database emoji export problems

  • Resolved JohannesDeml


    When creating a package with duplicato I have problems with some (but not all) emojis that are on pages of my site. For example the string “🤓🕹⚓” results in “??⚓”. I checked the sql file in the zip and it already has the problem there. When I do a quick export (UTF8) with phpmyadmin I don’t have this problem.

    Any idea how I can solve this?
    I’m currently running the site locally through XAMPP:
    Server: Apache/2.4.38 (Win64) OpenSSL/1.1.1b PHP/7.3.3

    GD: bundled (2.1.0 compatible)
    Magic Quotes GPC: Off
    Memory Limit: 1,024.0 MiB
    Max Upload Size: 1,024.0 MiB

    Maximum No. Connections: 151
    Maximum Packet Size: 1,024.0 KiB
    Data Disk Usage: 2.7 MiB
    Index Disk Usage: 486.0 KiB

    Hey @johannesdeml

    You might try this FAQ item:

        – How can I fix strange characters, unicode symbols, emoji icons?

    If you want to submit a support ticket for this issue I can have a closer look at your setup. Please provide a link to this thread when submitting the ticket.


    Hi Cory,

    thanks for the reply. I knew of the FAQ site before and did try to solve it with the suggested methods, sadly without any success. I sent you a ticket linked to this thread and with a simple reproduction to show that the problem occurs with a fresh standard installation of wp. I hope that helps in nailing down the problem. If you need any other information, please let me know.
