I get "mysql_connect(): Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server" warning

If you are getting such errors as

"Warning: mysql_connect(): Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in XXX line 7

Could not connect: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client"

Such warning messages are due to the new encryption method used by MySQL 4.1 and above.

To solve this run the SQL command :

set password for username@localhost = old_password('password');

Substitute username and password for your own.
