I have the same problem as here: #22654 – Moving to new server "Force UTF-8" problem, but with WordPress, not Joomla.
Since upgrading (from 1.3.1) to 1.3.3, I cannot do a fresh recovery of a website using kickstart pro and Angie.
I get to the point at which it requires a database recovery, however I am unable to recover the database with the error: SQL=CREATE DATABASE ...... CHARACTER SET 'utf8mb4' (screenshot attached).
The database is most definitely already created (and is empty) and the user definitely has the requisite rights to be able to write to the database, indeed using a recovery file created with 1.3.1 works perfectly with exactly the same credentials with the same database.
I did notice in the changelog for 1.3.2 (which I skipped): # [HIGH] ANGIE: Restoration may fail or corrupt text on some servers due to UTF8MB4 support - and an extra checkbox on the database restoration page (which makes no difference whether it's checked or not!). I wonder if this could have something to do with it?
