please make the charset in the class OxidEsales\EshopCommunity\Core\DatabaseProvider
configureable, so the usage of utf8mb4 is possible.
I this case an additional config Param called ‘dbCharset’ would be usefull, with a default value of utf8.
this is a very small change and cannot be done in a module, changing the db encoding results in a core change right now.
This is a very important feature, if you have customers who want to use emojis in their oxid shop.
I would submit a patch if wanted.
