  • vB Database Error

    What steps do I need to take to try to resolve this?

    I requested that my host upgrade our VPS from PHP 4.4.4 to PHP 4.4.7 and install Xcache v1.2.1

    I am now being flooded with db errors. I see that PHP has been upgraded. I am uncertain about Xcache. I have not yet received a reply back from my host regarding the datebase errors.

    mysql_connect() [<a href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client /home/mysite/public_html/forum/includes/class_core.php on line 274

    MySQL Error :

    Classname : vb_database
    I'm kinda freaking out, lol, so I appreciate any replies.

    Grrr.... everything I am finding is pointing to an issue with my server/host. I guess there's not a great deal I can do on my end.

    Unless I'm wrong.

      No, you're right. The server's PHP is not installed with full MySQL support. You need to contact your host about this.
