Recent Update and SQL Grey Issues

Post by RampantTech » 12 Nov 2018 23:27

Hi All,

3 Days ago we updated to the newest versions of the usual n the Webmin interface
And since then we have been getting the below errors in the logs. And each one sends me an email claiming the database is "reconnecting".
Does anyone know how to stop these?. It appears to be a Collation issues. The emails in question all appear to be spam from other languages

I am getting the same issue, and I didn't do any updates, so I don't think it is related.

I did find an interesting article from 2010 about this issue and I'm not ... confident on applying this fix to EFA.

https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic ... 16&t=41081

Basically it is a language setting in the collation database that needs to be fixed, or on the user that runs mysql, if you figure it out let me know, if I do I will post it up.
