error: [app] Application is crashed: Error: ER_NOT_SUPPORTED_AUTH_MODE: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client
SamuelHi, Downgrading MYSQL version 8.0 to version 6.5, I think this may help you.
Francis Thanks..Will try this out.
Issue resolved. Thanks Francis and vijayalakshmi . I appreciate you guys.
Do we only have to use that mysql version?
I want your explaining about this.
mysql 8.0.16 not available???
MySQL 8.0 uses a new default authentication plugin - caching_sha2_password - whereas MySQL 5.7 used a different one - mysql_native_password. Currently, the community Node.js drivers for MySQL don't support compatible client-side authentication mechanisms for the new server plugin. So better u can downgrade it.
