Using, for the first time, a PHP page to test a connection to a MySQL dbase. I'm using the sample code for this test from the hosting company. I get this error - "Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client". Now I'm trying to figure out - "Who is the client?" Is it my machine? Since their server is the one running the code, are they the client? I've checked all settings and then tried other sample code for testing and got the same result.
I can confirm if need be, but I'm pretty sure off the top of my head that the dbase is MySQL 5.0.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
