Error: Mysql connection

Recommended Posts

I have just upgraded from mysql 4.0 to 4.1 and now get the following error message:
Could not connect to MySQL: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client:
Can anyone shed light on this please.

You have to update your mysql password to use old style passwords. you have to do this thru the mysql command line

1. log in as root
2. mysql> use mysql
3. mysql> UPDATE user SET Password = OLD_PASSWORD('your_password_here') WHERE User = 'username_here' AND Host = 'hostname_here';

Should be all set after that
