Authentication protocol error message during installation


beckerben

Recommended Posts

I get this when running the /cataog/install/index.php script on step 1. I have MYSql 4.1, PHP 4.3, Apache 2 and Redhat Linux 8.0, anyone ever seen this:

 

Step 1: 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

 

Did I not install mysql with some flag set or something? Is there another download I need?

Hi there,

 

This one helped me with MySQL 4.1-gamma.

 

Enter this in your MySQL console:

1. use mysql;

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

3. FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

 

Afterwards it should work.

 

Regards,

Rias
