4.1 problem

Post by kgoodrich » Wed 01 Dec 2004 22:23

Can someone please help me. I recently upgraded my mysql server from 4.0 to 4.1.7. I am and have been using mysqldirect.net 1.8 with no problems. Since I have upgraded, my applications using mysqldirect.net cannot connect. I keep getting the following error:

Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

I have tried putting in the old-passwords directive in my.ini. I have entered it every way possible, but my old-passwords variable never changes from OFF. What is the deal, does MySqlDirect.NET 1.8 not support the new password format presented by mysql 4.1.7??????????????????

Help me,

MySQLDirect .NET 1.80 supports MySQL 4.1.0 but doesn't support 4.1.1 as these versions have a lot differences in protocol and API.
This support was added to MySQLDirect .NET 2.0, see History:
- MySQL 4.1.1 alpha support added
