View as plain text  
you can add --old-password when starting MySQL manually or
try adding the following to the my.cnf file

[mysqld]
old-password

My /etc/my.cnf does not have this option? Is this something I can add? 
What is the correct syntax?

Best regards,

Did you try "old-passwords" in /etc/my.cnf ?
Old clients use an old authentication protocol, which is not the default 
on modern mysql servers. For compatibility, "old-passwords" uses the old 
algorithm.

For php:
./configure <options> --with-mysql=/path/to/newmysql/
