Can't fix error 1251



I try to follow the guide here:


When doing steps 19-22 i get the error message: ERROR 1251: Client does not support authentication protocol requested.

It seems to be something about setting mysql to use old passwords.

I searched the internet for a solution, sadly all the commands/guides i found work for older versions of mysql and i can't seem to fix my version (8.0), best i did was changing my root password but that doesn't seem to be enough without setting mysql to use old passwords and then resetting it, which i can't seem to do.

Anyone could explain a fix, keeping in mind its the first time i use mysql, so make it simple as possible!

Thanks in advance for any help!
