For compatibility with all MySQL clients, it is recommended to specify user password with double SHA1 in configuration file.
If user password is specified using SHA256, some clients won’t be able to authenticate (mysqljs and old versions of command-line tool mysql).

Restrictions:

  • prepared queries are not supported

  • some data types are sent as strings
