Mysql database on does not support emoji!


I am trying to add texts to mysql database using php and when there is any emoji in text it will get converted to question mark(?) for eg. if I add “hello :slight_smile:” It will become "hello ? "
What can I do please help.


@vicky_r Have you tried this in your script head section.


I also tried to insert emoji directly into mysql database but it gets converted to question mark(?)


Not sure if this would be something that 000webhost has went with and if you need the feature you might just need to upgrade :confused:
