Add Native Support for MySQL 5

  1. LanceDockins


    Right now you have to specially configure a MySQL 5 database because of the password differences between MySQL 5 and MySQL 4. It would be nice to see native support for MySQL 5's new password structure so you can specific your MySQL version in a config file and have it work automatically instead of having to run a SQL query against your MySQL 5 database to convert it to Old Password format.

    I'd rather see support for PostgreSQL.

    PostgreSQL instructions and other information related to using other database structures can be found here.

    I'm not aware of any issues with WordPress using MySQL 5.
