  • Setup MySql 5 for vB installation

    I am preparing a Windows 2000 server for an install of vBulletin. I think I installed MySql Server 5.0 correctly, but when I try to run the vb_test.php script, it tells me:

    Warning
    : mysql_connect(): Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in C:\Inetpub\Client\extremegossip.com\vb_test.php on line 113

    I looked in the MySql Reference Manual here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/old-client.html and the way I read it, that error should only affect MySql Server 4.1 and lower. My PHP test passed, PHP version 4.3.7 .

    Can anyone help me?

    Something is clearly not correct with your MySQL and/or PHP installations. Also why are you installing PHP 4.3.7 instead of 4.4.1? Your version has a security issue.

      4.3.7 was already installed before I started working with this server. I guess I will upgrade to PHP 4.4.1 and see if that solves the issue.

      EDIT: I got it to work by running the SET PASSWORD FOR command, as described in the MySql manual.
