View as plain text  
If you are the one controlling the MySQL server, do one of the following:
1. Shorten the Password Column of the mysql.User table
2. Change your password to use the old passwords (you may use SET
password=OLD_PASSWORD('your_password');
3. Put the option --OLD-PASSWORDS in your options file
4. Update the User table using the OLD_PASSWORD() function [for example
UPDATE mysql.User SET password=OLD_PASSWORD('your_password') WHERE
User='your_username' AND Host='your_host']

Just do one of the above and your problem will be solved until PHP releases
a version that supports the new authentication protocol used by 4.1
Also, reading the manual will give you more hints.


Thanks
