When you test the Site Status in WordPress you may see this error message:

utf8mb4 requires a newer client library

Do the following to fix:

  • Click on Select PHP Version in cPanel
  • Ensure you are using an alt-php version
  • Click on Extensions
  • Untick MySQL, mysqli, pdo_mysql
  • Tick mysqlnd, nd_mysqli, nd_pdo_mysql

Check the site is still loading as expected.
