Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT)

April 2018

If under PhpMyAdmin you get the following error:

 MySQL: Documentation 
#1267 - Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' 

This is due to the addition of collation in MySQL and mostly if the character set for the classification of the database is not the same as then one launched by phpMyAdmin.

To remedy simply go to phpMyAdmin homepaect the same set used by the table (usually latin1_swedish containing accented characters)
