PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1267 Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_unicode_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation ‘like’ in /home/xxx/public_html/whmcs/vendor/illuminate/database/Connection.php:331
Stack trace:
#0 /home/xxx/public_html/whmcs/vendor/illuminate/database/Connection.php(331): PDO->prepare(‘select * from `…’)
#1 /home/xxx/public_html/whmcs/vendor/illuminate/database/Connection.php(664): Illuminate\Database\Connection->Illuminate\Database\{closure}(‘select * from `…’, Array)

Today encountered this error after upgrading MySQL and WHMCS as well. As this is the error related to collations, you will get suggestions to update tables and all ! Developer’s job !
However, a simple temporary fix to this is update your configuration file by commenting $mysql_charset = ‘utf8’; line.

You are done !
