893MySQL 5.6, 5.5 and utf8mb4

I encountered a situation where my dev MySQL was 5.6 and running with a utf8mb4_unicode_ci Server Connection Collation, and the remote MySQL with 5.5 and a utf8mb4_general_ci collation. Needless to say, the remote DB did not like the dumps from my dev DB. Quick and Dirty Solution: replace('utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci', 'utf8mb4_general_ci') replace('utf8mb4_unicode_ci', 'utf8mb4_general_ci')
