    Can somebody explain what 4-byte characters in MySQL/MariaDB are?
    "MySQL is used as database but does not support 4-byte characters. To be able to handle 4-byte characters (like emojis) without issues in filenames or comments for example it is recommended to enable the 4-byte support in MySQL. For further details read the documentation page about this."​
    Do I need them for greatest functionality?

    Is it possible to enable UTF32 ISPconfig-wide or on a per site basis?

    Configure it in your global database config.
