Zen Cart Database Conversion Tool

This tool is based on v4.1 of convert_db2utf8.php authored by Andrew Berezin and r1.2 of utf8mb4-conversion.php authored by DrByte, essentially combining those two plugins' processing (https://www.zen-cart.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=1318).

This tool can be used to:

1. Convert your database to a utf8 or utf8mb4 character-set while retaining the integrity of non-ASCII characters, e.g. emojis and extended-ASCII like отслеживание дополнительных элементов.
2. Find (and correct) date, datetime and timestamp fields in the database that have invalid '0000-00-00 [00:00:00]' defaults and/or field values. These defaults are no longer supported by strict MySQL servers.
3. Find (and correct) mixed-collation issues in the database, where a table and/or fields in the database have different collations. If a database query compares two fields that have different collations, a MySQL fatal error will result in strict MySQL servers.
