Docker, NodeJS, and MySQL 8


1 min read

Seen this error when using Docker for NodeJS and MySQL 8?

Error: ER_NOT_SUPPORTED_AUTH_MODE: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

It is most likely the wrong package is being used.


Make sure the MySQL server is fully running before trying to connect, otherwise an error like below

Error: connect ECONNREFUSED
