We're asking the same question.
Worked through several compatibility issues to get past errors and finally ended up with:
"Error populating database: Could not execute query: BLOB, TEXT, GEOMETRY or JSON column 'ignoremeta' can't have a default value"
The only fix for that error listed in the forum seems to be related to MySQL 5.x and is not an option on v8.
For now, I'm done and going back to v5
