PHP fails to authenticate against MariaDB using PAM authentication. 

You can find all details in, which has been reported against mysql extension and closed only because that extension has been deprecated meanwhile, however exactly same problem exists in MySQLi as well.

I've checked current git and the dialog plugin is still not there, so this applies to all PHP versions so far.

I have also been able to reproduce this using mysqlnd with PDO and mysqli on php versions 7.0, 7.1, 7.2. I have not yet got around to recompiling PHP to use libmysqlclient to see if that also fails.

Thank kstan! I got your gist working in a docker container after a few modifications. I would still prefer mysqlnd supporting PAM auth though.
