in reply to Problems interacting with MySQL on Windows

Ok then, I understand that the problem is that password algorithm being changed in 4.1.
So, in short, the link that jZed sent me specifies that the client I'm using is a bit old. When it talks about the client does it mean the DBD::MySQL????
If so, anyone knows if it is possible to get it to work with MySQL 4.1, like updating or something like that, or do I need to do that password thingy whenever I want to create a new account?

    No, it means the client library that DBD::mysql is using.

    If you could recompile your client with the new libraries all would be good. I have done that, but unfortunately only on Linux.

    For Windows, you may ask PodMaster (a.k.a. crazyinsomniac), who has a repository and he takes requests.

    I've had the same trouble before. The only way i've gotten around it so far is to tell MySQL I want to use the old password algorithm on those accounts.
