AWS RDS connection issue

QuestionsAWS RDS connection issue
Intack asked 7 months ago

Hi PHP Grid Framework support team,

I’m Intack.

I was looking for grid viewer for my project and I’ve excited to find you guys.

I’ve downloaded free version for the testing.

But I’ve encountered problem connecting to my AWS RDS MySQL server.

I’ve got following error message.

“Please check your database connection configuration. Server sent charset unknown to the client. Please, report to the developers”

Is it because I’ve tested with free version or you’ve have known issue with AWS RDS?

If you need more information from me please contact me.

Thanks, in advance.

Refer this solution:

One possibility is to change encoding to utf8 in my.cnf of mysql as mentioned in above link.

Alternate is to change config.php (in root folder of demos) and replace:

// database charset


// database charset

Let me know the result.
