While migrating to the new server, I had the problem
ERROR 1118 (42000) at line : Row size too large (> 8126). Changing some columns to TEXT or BLOB may help. In current row format, BLOB prefix of 0 bytes is stored inline.
The work-around solution, according to mariadb.com, is to open the .sql file with nano and add the following at the top
SET GLOBAL innodb_default_row_format='dynamic'; SET SESSION innodb_strict_mode=OFF;
The import of the database went off smoothly. Hopefully, there will not be other problems.
There are other solutions suggested at stackexchange which did not work for me.
