I am connecting MySQL - 8.0 with MySQL Workbench and getting the below error.

Authentication plugin 'caching_sha2_password' cannot be loaded: dlopen(/usr/local/mysql/lib/plugin/caching_sha2_password.so, 2): image not found

I tried to use other client tools too

Any solution for this?

Best Answer

you can change the encryption of the password like this.

ALTER USER 'yourusername'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'youpassword';
