i am trying to setup a gitea instance in Windows 10 using a MySQL database.
My problem is maybe really simple to solve, but i dont have any experince using MySQL.
In the very first installation page of the gitea installation, which is displayed, when you navigate to localhost:3000 i setup database to MySQL, host: 127.0.0.1:3306, user: gitea, pass: ***, database: gitea.
In MySQL i created a database called gitea with “CREATE DATABASE gitea” and a user “gitea”.
When i click on the install button on the bottem of the page i always get the error message: “Datenbankeinstellungen sind ungültig: this authentication plugin is not supported” which seems to lead to an authentication problem. I have tried to find out what plugin gitea uses to login and which is set for the user gitea, but without any progress up to now. The only thing i found was that Gogs uses password value instead of mysql_native_password but that does not help up to now.
Can somebody please help me?
