MySQL 8.0 support

Hi David,

Do you have any advice / experience with PT running on MySQL 8.0?

Hi Alex,

None of the deprecated functions are used by the script so there shouldn't be any problems but I will set-up a test server and give it a go both as a new install and upgrading MySQL against an existing database - i'll report back if anything to be aware of...

Cheers,
David.

Hi David,

any news on your test with MYSQL 8 ? Just got me a new VPS, and i am thinking about upgrading to MYSQL 5.7 or 8, but not sure of 8 yet.

Hi Mikey,

It does appear that there are complications regarding the new authentication methods and password hash functions used in MySQL 8 and calling from php-mysql (PDO) library so I am going to need to do some further research and tests regarding this.

It should be possible with the appropriate configuration of mysql-server and ensuring that users are configured with legacy passwords but at this time I would not recommend upgrading to version 8. No problems at all with 5.7 of course.

Cheers,
David.

Hi David,

Just installed 8.0 last weekend along with php 7.2, ran into the complication with the authentication method and password hash functions. Luckily there is a workaround for that using legacy mode. Up untill now no probs other than that. No problem with imports, registering feeds or searches up untill now.
