Hello all.

I need a little help. I am installing on Win XP Pro, MySQL 4.1.7, PHP 5.0.2, and IIS 5.1 (comes with XP Pro). I can view plain HTML's through my browser but am having trouble with MySQL and PHP5 communicating.

When I execute "<?php phpinfo(); ?>" from my browser, I get the PHP version and info, etc. So I gather that my PHP5 installation is OK.

But when I try to connect to my SQL via PHP5 with:
"<?php $connection = mysql_connect( "localhost", "root", "pass+word" )
or die( "Sorry - unable to connect to MySQL" );
echo( "Congratulations - you connected to MySQL" );"

I get the following error:

" Sorry - unable to connect to MySQLPHP Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in C:\WWW\mysqltest.php on line 11"

What am I doing wrong?

Help, please.........

:( :blink: :unsure:

Thanks in advance.

You need to make sure the MySQL client DLL libraries on your system. If you downloaded the ZIP files and not the self extractor. There will be a file named libmysql.dll place this in your SYSTEM32 directory.

Post you need to run this command after create a new account
Please run this command after you create an account for your MySQL Server:

Because the authentication protocol which used by MySQL4.1 and later version does not support the older client.
