JSON data type in PHPMyAdmin

Is there any way to work with JSON datatypes in phpMyAdmin like this tutorial talks about:


I'm getting errors from phpMyAdmin when I try to create attributes with JSON data types. I'm currently on version 4.7.4

Thanks in advance!

Hmmm, phpMyAdmin is just a way of getting to a sql database, so it should work the same. Why are you looking to use JSON? And are you working with WordPress?
