I am getting a DB authentication error when I run install.pl
The db value in my codestriker.conf file is set to
host "winvideo1" has MySQL v 4.1.7 and has been configured w/ a 'codestriker' database per installation instructions. I can access it remotely w/ a mysql client version 5.0.18 this way:
mysql -u codestriker -h winvideo1
The same mysql command w/ a pre 5.0 version results in a similar authentication error.
The mysql v 5.0.18 client is included in my PATH.
And I get the following error when I run install.pl :
Checking for LWP::UserAgent (any) ok: found v2.001

failed: Client does not support authentication
protocol requested by server; consider upgrading

Can you help me out? Thanks in advance.
Try upgrading your DBD::MySQL perl module, so that it supports the more recent authentication protocol required by your SQL server.
Thank you very much -- that was it.
