I have a Joomla 3.9.x site running on a Windows IIS ver. 10 server that wouldn’t allow me to install Fabrik. I decided to move it to my local XXAMP install it there and if everything goes well I would replace the site on the windows server with this new site that had the Fabrik installed. Running the Akeeba Kickstart the database wouldn’t restore.

I was getting ” ErrNo #1273 Unknown collation: ‘utf8mb4_unicode_ci’ “. This response from Nicolas was the solution I needed.

I hope this helps someone else out there…
