Install SQL server

Incompatible/nonstandard server version or connection protocol detected (8.2.0).

A connection to this database can be established but some MySQL Workbench features may not work properly since the database is not fully compatible with the supported versions of MySQL.

MySQL Workbench is developed and tested for MySQL Server versions 5.6, 5.7 and 8.0.

For MySQL Server older than 5.6, please use MySQL Workbench version 6.3.

Hi Anisa!
Thanks for reaching out.

This error indicates that you are using MySQL Workbench with a MySQL Server version (8.2.0) that is not fully compatible with it. MySQL Workbench is optimized for MySQL Server versions 5.6, 5.7, and 8.0. To resolve this, you can either upgrade/downgrade your MySQL Server to one of these compatible versions or use a different version of MySQL Workbench that supports MySQL Server 8.2.0.

Hope this helps.
