On the page, https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/c/, you can find the following lines:

Connector/C (libmysqlclient) is a client library for C development.

For C-language and SQL:

for MySQL 8.0, 5.7, 5.6, 5.5
we recommend MySQL Connector/C 8.0

But when I downloaded the mysql installer web, there's no MySQL Connector/C version 8.0. The last version is 6.1.11!

Can you please tell me where I can download the MySQL Connector/C compatible with MySQL Server 8.0?

How to repeat:
Try to download MySQL Connector/C 8.0

Use the libmysql.dll or libmysql.lib shipped together with the Server package which is placed in the lib folder for the install process.
