I'm tuning a new bare metal web server with MySQL 8 and did something wrong.
I have the follow setting in /etc/my.cnf:


Through: WHM > SQL Services > phpMyAdmin
I looked into this database: "mysql" table: "user" and found these two rows values not using mysql_native_password in their "plugin" column:

mysql.sys | caching_sha2_password
mysql.infoschema | caching_sha2_password

I changed manually those two values to: mysql_native_password

*** Now phpMyAdmin doesn't open and I can't get those back to their original value. ***

I BEG FOR YOUR HELP to change again those values to "caching_sha2_password" so I can have access again to phpMyAdmin.

¿How can I do it?
