MySQL showing ERROR 1524

Linode Staff

Whenever I try connecting to MySQL, it throws the following error message.

ERROR 1524 (HY000): Plugin '0' is not loaded

Any ideas how to get this resolved?

If you’re seeing that error message it most likely means there is corruption in at least one of your MySQL tables. The exact cause seems to vary case to case, but it looks like you can get this resolved by running a mysql_upgrade, or resetting MySQL's root password. I’d recommend trying the upgrade first.

I’ve included some articles below that take a deeper dive into this issue and outline some solutions that should help get you back on track.
