    The most likely cause of this is someone changed the default collation of the database between versions of vBulletin without updating existing tables. vBulletin 3.8.X will use the database's default collation for new tables and fields. You will need to go into your database and make sure that every table and every field in those tables have the same character set and collation. We have scripts to do this specifically for vBulletin 5.X sites but nothing for 3.8.11.

    There is some more information here on stack exchange:
