Client does not support authentication protocol re


Recommended Posts

mySQL 4.1.7 and IIS php 4.3.9

I'm getting this error:


New Installation


Database Import


A test connection made to the database was NOT successful.


The error message returned is:


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


Please click on the Back button below to review your database server settings.


If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company.



during step 2.


I have found by searching the forum:


Enter this in your MySQL console:

1. use mysql;

2. UPDATE user SET password = old_password('password') WHERE user = 'user';



Afterwards it should work.



That did not work.


I also had tried turning on "use old password" method on through MySQL Administrator. Sadly, that did not help.


Any ideas? Thanks in advance
