MySQL 8.0.11 with Wordpress 4.8.6

I got following error when trying to open the blog in the browser.

Warning: mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2054): The server requested authentication method unknown to the client in /var/www/ on line 1603

So I created a new user with the authentification handler mysql_native_password (instead of the default caching_sha2_password) and granted permissions.

CREATE USER '<user>'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY '<password>';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON <database> . * TO '<user>'@'localhost';

Normally that should work, but it didn't. So I added following line to the config file of mysql:


If this does not work you can choose the retain old authentification method option during the installation.

Restarted MySQL and imported the dump via

mysql -u <user> -p <database> < dump.sql

Datenbank liegt dann unter /var/lib/mysql Konfigurationsdatei ist diese Datei hier: /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf

Update Wordpress database after relocation

Fix wordpress permissions

cd /var/www/

# wp-content only should be writeable by everyone eql. www-data
sudo chown -R <user>:<user> *
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data wp-content

Set upload max body size for wordpress themes

sudo service nginx restart
sudo service php7.0-fpm restart
