comment MySQL Collation utf8_unicode differences
It affects sorting. If you absolutely need to sort against a more recent (but still outdated) version of the Unicode standard, then you may want to use 520_ci. For my websites I couldn’t care less.

comment Set value of character_set_client to utf8mb4
Why do you have skip-character-set-client-handshake in your config file? It’s a command-line option, not a variable.
