Readme: Update MySQL recommended version

Previously: #58158, #55791

MySQL 5.7 is reaching EOL in 10 days so we need to update the recommended version in both readme.html and the Requirements page on the website.

We should change it to 8.0, matching the page

Note that PHPUnit tests are currently failing because of that with:

readme.html's Recommended MySQL version is too old. Remember to update the Requirements page, too.
Failed asserting that '2023-10-21' is less than '2023-10-21'.

See where the recommended version in the WordPress readme was updated from 5.7 to 8.0, because version 5.7 reached EOL.

I don't know if this is the right place to make this change for the page though 🤷

Props @SergeyBiryukov
