SafeLinx/MySQL: support "caching_sha2_password" authentication plugin instead of "mysql_native_password"

In MySQL 8.0, "caching_sha2_password" is the default authentication plugin compared to "mysql_native_password" in earlier MySQL versions.

When configuring MySQL with "caching_sha2_password" (the default authentication plugin in MySQL 8) -- see attached mysql-legacy.png -- SafeLinx can't connect to the MySQL server (see attached mysql-legacy-error.png).

Pls. modify the SafeLinx code so that the "caching_sha2_password" authentication plugin can be used.

As a SafeLinx Administrator, I want to connect SafeLinx to the MySQL server using the default "caching_sha2_password" authentication plugin.
