Pipelines - Server sent charset unknown to the client Edited

Had some builds passing a few days ago, but today we have been getting this error even when re-running the passing builds:

“SQLSTATE[HY000] [2054] Server sent charset unknown to the client. Please, report to the developers”

Did something change in Pipelines? How can we set the charset of the server? Thanks!

In the end we fixed this by editing bitbucket-pipelines.yml so that the PHP version we were using was php 7.1.16 and mysql version was 5.7.

Hi Gillian,

If using MySQL, this might help. Set in my.cnf.



collation-server = utf8_unicode_ci
character-set-server = utf8

 Found in this link with the same error.

Thanks, but how can we edit my.cnf in bitbucket pipelines? 

Don't use utf8 with MySQL, as it's an alias for their broken utf8mb3 encoding. Explicitly use utf8mb4 (and utf8mb4_unicode_ci)
