I'm trying to make WordPress run locally on my PC but have problems setting it up. (I tried to look at the many many posts on this subject, but couldn't find a solution for myself...)
- MySQL 5.0
- PHP 4.4.1
- hosted on my pc (using IIS).
I created a database named 'wordpress' and I can connect to it from within the mysql shell, but for some reason WordPress just couldn't connect to it. I'm sure the dbname, dbpassword, and dbhost are correct.
I tinkered with the wordpress php source to find out the problem and I managed to get it to print out this error message:
"WordPress database error: [Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client]"
I installed MySQL using default settings.
Any help? What else should I look for? Thanks!
