Finding Mysql server...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Not sure if this is a mysql issue or not so - placed it here in the hope of a quick reply.

I have apache 2.0.29 php 4.4.4 and mysql 4.1 installed on my local machine.

phpmyadmin says it can't connect through the auth type and says upgrade my version of mysql....

NOW

when I run phpinfo() it says i have mysql v3.23.29 running!!!!! - but I have installed 4.1!!!!

I cannot find any other version of mysql on this machine (doesn't mean it isn't there)...

could anyone be so kind as to tell me what action I could possibly take to fix this? what config settings I need to check or anything else you think could be causing this...

Toon,

Is the exact error:

Could not connect to MySQL: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server;

yes

the thing that bothers me is that php sees mysql version 3.23.49 - but yes that is the issue

It's due to password incompatibility....

Check out this link [url=http://www.digitalpeer.com/id/mysql]DigitalPeer[/url] and I hope you have root access!
