Error establishing a database connection
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!
