I am a little lost. I have installed 1.8.2-5 on my windows 8. I was wondering if server connection collation has anything to do with why I cannot install some components from joomla on my local host. I have the data bases set to utf8 general ci.
my collation says utf8mb4_general_ci. I tried to figure out what this meant but I am lost if this makes a difference. I have checked with the requirements for joomla 3.2.4 and i meet all the requirements for php and mysql. Does anyone have any ideas.
I hope I gave you enough information.
