saw this error – SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1267 Illegal mix of collations (utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8mb4_unicode_ci,IMPLICIT) for operation ‘=’ – on 3x WordPress Woocommerce sites.
My support (SiteGround) suggested changing the collation using PHPMyAdmin.
this seemed like a recipe for disaster.
found this plugin, not updated for 3 years, but saw 4 5* reviews in the last 24 hours, so I knew it was OK to try.
Uploaded, installed, activated – problem solved.
remember, it’s WordPress, There’s ALWAYS a plugin!
the plugin was even updated between me downloading and installing! glad to see it’s up to date. that always helps when trying plugins.
many thanks, lifesaver
