This is the error I am getting when trying to install Gmaps by Reinos on EE4.

I'm getting a similar error when trying to install the Gmaps Data Plugin on EE4 as well.

You need to change a little in code at line 230 in upd.gmaps of your plugin directory.

'constraint' => '255' to 'constraint' => '191'

This need to change from 255 to 191 because there is INNODB utf8mb4.

  • Thanks! It seems the code change was actually in settings.php for EE4 at line 167. I can now install Gmaps. I am however having a similar issue when installing the Gmaps Data plugin. Any thoughts on that? (See above screenshot I've added to my original post) Thanks for your help. Feb 15, 2018 at 19:46
  • Yeah, same thing you need to do in Gmaps Data also. You need to change "constraint" of "lat", "lng", "city", "street_name", "country", "country_code", "search_location" from "200" to "191" in the "settings.php" which was located in the directory of Gamps Data plugin. Feb 16, 2018 at 2:34
