How do I upgrade new MySql client library?

Post by tom1949 » Fri 02 Dec 2005 03:53

We recently upgraded our Mysql server to 4.1.

We immediately began seeing error:

Client does not support authentication protocol etc.

I know you guys must be aware of this but I can't find any Step 1,Step 2, Step 3 etc. procedures on what to do about it. My easiest approach seems to be to : Upgrade to Newer Client Library.

I'm not sure what that means in relation to your Mydac 3.0 product that I have (with Dlephi 7).

Will you please help will a thorough response?

Latest v3.x releases (And of course v4.x) supports new authentication method.

If you don't want to upgrade, then look at this:

With this option you can enable passwords for users in old format.
