I think mysql 8 is the new version of mysql. I don't know if there a exists a stable release or only a beta.
My thoughts are that the last php-version maybe can handle the mentioned authentication method or you have to try to compile the handling for the mysql-plugin in the php-mysqldriver.
Maybe the question about enhancing the php is relation on the Linuxdistribution.Â Here I mean an additional rpm if you use Redhat, Fedora, Centos, Suse...
or .deb if you use Debian, Ubuntu or such of these.
To mix a tarball with one of these packages I think it is to difficult in this case.
