Data Migration error. Settings

Data Migration error. Settings

Migrating from 1.9.0.1 on shared hosting to a private hosting Magento 2 version 2.1 development instance with PHP 7, MariaDB I get this error:

 

[Zend_Db_Adapter_Exception]
SQLSTATE[HY000] [2054] The server requested authentication method unknown to the client


[PDOException]
SQLSTATE[HY000] [2054] The server requested authentication method unknown to the client


[PDOException]
PDO::__construct(): The server requested authentication method unknown to the client [mysql_old_password]

 

A little research shows to downgrade my PHP? Surely there's a better way?

Re: Data Migration error. Settings

In case anyone else runs into these error messages all I did was change the password on the Magento 1 mysql connection to a longer password and it worked.
