From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Mysql

Post by The PIT »

I was thinking of upgrading mysql to 8.2 however noticed the authentication support is changing and that mysql_native_password isn't allowed in the newer version. I guess this is called standard in earlier versions mysql 8

I've got a choice of sha256 Password or caching _sha2_password and I'm pretty sure cumulusmx doesn't support that. Can you confirm?

It shouldn't be a problem, the MySqlConnector package MX uses has supported caching _sha2_password for years.
