trouble of confluence 6.5 to connect mysql 8 on ubuntu 20.04

Hi. I have an a little bit old version of confluence 6.5 to run on my ubuntu 18.04 for a while. The database was mysql 5.X. 


Recently, I upgrade my ubuntu to 20.04 and also upgrade the mysql version to 8. Now it seems that I can not use my confluence now since it reporting:
MYSQL isolution level could not be read.


I did spend lots of time to find out that I also need to download new mysql-connector-8.xx.jar and put it to the right folder. But the problem is that even I managed to get the new mysql connector jar file and put into the right folder. I still could not have confluence 6.5 to connect to mysql (I did stop/start confluence when doing so).


Is there anyone can help me on this please? There are lots of my personal data on confluence. Thank you in advance.

btw, isolution level is correctly configured in mysql 8:


Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

mysql> SELECT @@GLOBAL.transaction_isolation, @@transaction_isolation;
| @@GLOBAL.transaction_isolation | @@transaction_isolation |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

What does the log say the database connection errors are when Confluence starts up?

@zhihui zheng  Hm, if I were I will start upgrade of Confluence at least to 7.2 version.


Because too risky works with unsupported 8.0 and old Confluence.
