    Has anyone got any real-world experience (either negative or positive) of using Social Engine with MySQL 8.0?

    I know our team did a quick test on it and didn't see any issues but I don't know of anyone using it. Hopefully, if someone is they will post.

    Just to update, I have been running MySQL 8 for a month now and have not encountered any problems directly related to SocialEngine.

     

    The php_mysql connector still seems to have random issues with the newer SHA2 password hashing method. For the moment, I changed the user that accesses MySQL to use the "mysql_native" password hash.

    Thank you for updating this! We are also testing PHP 8 on our v6.
