sorry may I was not very clear in my 1st post.
What I want to know is how to solve the error ‘CLIENT_PLUGIN_AUTH is required’?
I need the mysql database to store my values like temperature sensors, humidity sensors etc…
The database server is a Western Digital MyCloud. The mySQL version on the MyCloud server is 5.1.56.
The problem is I cannot update the mySQL to a newer version because then my MyCloud would not work anymore because MyCloud uses the database as well as I understand.
Username and password are already set in jdbc.cfg.
I read the documentation on my own and got the persistance already running with a mySQL server installed on a Raspi.
The initial issue was to use the mySQL server provided from a WD myCloud NAS. But this server uses the old version 5.1.56 which leads to authentication issues as described above. And no, the server on the NAS can’t be updated since it is also used by the NAS itself.
