This is a very common error that has to do with different hashing algorithms used between versions of MySQL. Open up phpMyAdmin and run this command:


SET PASSWORD FOR user@localhost = OLD_PASSWORD('password');


Change "user" to your mysql username and "password" to your mysql password. This should fix your problem.

Please use the forums for support! I am happy to help you here, but I am unable to offer free technical support over instant messenger or e-mail.
