    error in phpMyAdmin


    hi guys

    i trying to set up phpMyAdmin to use, on my server, but it dosen want to play ball.

    Ive got the server up and running and people can connect to it.

    However when i try and log into phphMyAdmin, i get this error:

    #1251 - Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

    i tried upgrading my sql tables but still the same
    i on fedora core 3 running:
    Mysql (server and clinet) version 5.0.2-0
    apache 2.0.53
    and php 4.3.10

    ie tried changing the auth type from cookie, to http and config

    Did you install the MySQL modules for PHP as well?
    Because the error does not reflect the MySQL client library, it is more a phpMySQL-client error AFAIK

    Just create a short php script and access it from your favorite browser!

    I.e.
    Code:
    <?
    phpinfo&#40;&#41;;
    >
    Call it info.php or whatever you wish to, just make sure you can access it within your Apache server.
    From this script you will know all features you have for your PHP installation.

    ok! Now I can connect, but as soon as I try to connect, I will have an option to download you php.php file, which indicates that you don't have you PHP correctly setup.
    Try to re-install PHP, and re-configure your Apache server to interprete PHP.
