I copied my Confluence v6.12.1 db to validate upgrades, but is it incompatible with 7.5.0?

When I run \l+ it shows encoding of UTF8, but also collate of 'C', which worked perfectly for 6.12.1, so I need to know if my db is no longer compatible with Confluence, or if there is additional configuration that my server requires;
abcd | abcdowner | UTF8 | C | C | dbowner | 1000MB | pg_default | This is my vanilla db
