I'm sorry, this seems to be getting overlooked, each time i attempt to convey it:
For BOTH A and B, the Operating System, the Mysql server and client versions &
configurations, and (apparently) everything else relevant to mysql, IS IDENTICAL!
(including firewall, etc.etc.)
Yet, C connects to A, but not to B (within the SAME script and loop)!
If it /is/ a matter of new-style vs. old-style password, PLEASE tell me where else to
look. On both A and B, the files /etc/my.cnf are identical (with "old_passwords=1" in
each). Where else should I look for a difference in configurations?
If C (with MySQL 4.0.25-standard-log) connects to A (5.1.7-beta), as it is now (WITHOUT
any upgrading), doesn't that indicate that C is capable of connecting to B as well (B
being identical to A)? (Something akin to transitivity here...)
