MySQL connection error

Recommended Posts

I am just starting out learning PHP and have been trying to connect to a MYSQL DB as a tutorial.

I get this error:

[quote]
Warning: mysql_connect(): Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in C:\Program Files\Top Systems\Top PHP Studio\project\index~tps~~tps~.php on line 5

[/quote]

and this is my code:
[quote]
<?

$db = "gene";

$link  =  mysql_connect( "localhost", "root", "gene"  );
if ( ! $link )
  die("Couldn't Connect to mysql" );
 
  mysql_select_db( $db)
    or die ("Couldn't open $db: ".mysql_error() )
   


?>
[/quote]

I have MYSQl 5 installed and PHP4 running.

What am I ding wrong here?? thanks from a newbie
