I have minimized my code to the following;


echo "host:" . $host . "<br>\n";
echo "user:" . $user . "<br>\n";
echo "password:" . $password . "<br>\n";
echo "dbname:" . $dbname . "<br>\n";

$link = mysqli_connect($host, $user, $password, $dbname);

if (!$link) {
echo "Error: Unable to connect to MySQL." . "<br>\n";
echo "Debugging errno: " . mysqli_connect_errno() . "<br>\n";
echo "Debugging error: " . mysqli_connect_error() . "<br>\n";

echo mysqli_set_charset ($link, $charset) . "<br>\n";

echo "Success: A proper connection to MySQL was made! The my_db database is great." . "<br>\n";
echo "Host information: " . mysqli_get_host_info($link) . "<br>\n";



It gives the following results;
Error: Unable to connect to MySQL.
Debugging errno: 2054
Debugging error: Server sent charset unknown to the client. Please, report to the developers

MySQL 8.0 Command Line Client gives the following results;
