MySQL 8.0 - Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server

Hi All,

I just did a new install of MySQL 8.0.20. I did have a issue so I posted that question in the Workbench forum.

The question I have here is that the 1st time I tried to log in as root I got the above error message. I was using a PHP script at the time (it creates the database, users, tables and loads data). I have to use root for this. So, I did some web searching and came up with this answer. It did work.

ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';
flush privileges;

Have I caused myself problems by doing this?


Thanks for any help,

Charles
