    Hi there,

    I am looking at my phpMyAdmin and I’m finding few tables of yours in utf8mb4_unicode_ci database character. Should they be in this format instead <dfn title=”Unicode (UCA 5.2.0), case-insensitive”>utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci</dfn> ?

    The previous message came little bit wrong:

    *Should they be in this format instead utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci?

    Hello Tuomo,

    Thanks for your question about WordPress database tables related to the Yoast SEO plugin. Generally, the recommended charset for WordPress sites is utf8mb4 (4-byte UTF-8 Unicode Encoding), and the recommended collation is utf8mb4_unicode_ci.

    Unicode provides a standard that is evolving with the following numbers:

    4.0.0 - utf8mb4_unicode_ci
    5.2.0 - utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci
    9.0.0 - utf8mb4_0900_ai_ci

    It is generally better to use the latest standard that is available. My advice is to not mess with charsets/collation unless you really know what you’re doing. You stand to corrupt data. if you don’t.

    The plugin database entries contain wpseo or wp_yoast:

    • wp_yoast_indexable
    • wp_yoast_indexable_hierarchy
    • wp_yoast_migrations
    • wp_yoast_primary_term
    • wp_yoast_prominent_words (note: only available in Yoast SEO Premium)
    • wp_yoast_seo_links
    • wp_yoast_seo_meta

    Are you on a WordPress multisite setup?

    Okay and yes I have my wordpress in multisite environment.

    The number included in the database prefix (e.g. wp_4_, wp_3_) indicates a different table for a different WordPress installation. Having a multisite setup means you will have more tables than if it was just a single installation.
