Ghost crashed for no reason

We have a new blog on that has been up for two weeks on http://hakeem.meddy.com. All of a sudden, just one day it gives me the following error:
ER_NOT_SUPPORTED_AUTH_MODE: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

Here are my versions
Ghost-CLI version: 1.11.0
Ghost version: 2.25.1
mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.7.27, for Linux (x86_64) using EditLine wrapper

I set up ghost on DigitalOcean by myself not through the marketplace.
This is happening on all browsers.

Hey there! Would you be able to check if there are any logs or more information within your DigitalOcean dashboard?

The logs for MySQL is only showing me this message
2019-07-25T09:22:41.446703Z 276 [Note] Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

Is there something I can do that would quickly get this back up

I checked the MySQL version that I have and it’s 5.7.27 but that was released 3 days ago. It seems like it decided to update on its own.

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.7/en/news-5-7-27.html

I didn’t upgrade it, I’m not sure how it upgraded on it’s own, but this seems to be the problem.

https://github.com/mysqljs/mysql/issues/1507 this is the reason. I’m unsure why it happened all of a sudden but following this thread fixed everything form me.
