Connecting to Mysql5 with phpmyadmin

Recommended Posts


I am setup phpmyadmin to run with already setup Apache 2.0.47 , php 4,3,3 and mysql 5.0.18nt on a XP professional Box.. I followed the instructions in the manual and set everythig up including creating the config.inc.php file to include the username and password for the Mysql Server. After all this I brough up [a href=\"http://localhost/phpMyAdmin\" target=\"_blank\"]http://localhost/phpMyAdmin[/a] in my browser and it gave me the following error:

#1251 - Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

I am abit lost as to what client this is refering too, I think I have the last stable version on phpMyAdmin

any ideas?

If you have any access to your database, run this:

[code]SET PASSWORD FOR root@localhost = OLD_PASSWORD('yourpw')[/code]
If you're not running phpMyAdmin as root, you can change it to whatever you're using.
