Please remember to backup your database prior to using this tool.
UTF8 or UTF8MB4 collation and character sets are available.

The TEXT & VARCHAR conversion is available to convert the actual text in those type of database fields to UTF-8.
This will likely be necessary for either UTF8 OR UTF8MB4.
There is also an option to convert any UTF8MB4 emojis to their UTF8 equivalents if opting a UTF8 database setting.

Note regarding databases converted to UTF8MB4: TEXT and MEDIUMTEXT fields will remain and will not be downgraded when converting to UTF8.
