phpmyadmin login issue

I’m having a rather strange issue logging into phpmyadmin through clients’ SiteWorx accounts. Everytime I click on the link for phpmyadmin, a login screen comes up and errors out with " #1251 - Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client." However, I believe that this problem is arising due to InterWorx’s php/httpd/mysql packages as it’s through SiteWorx.

I guess I could be wrong, but this system is running stock CentOS 5 with the standard php/mysql packages from the upstream. The only thing modified was the installation of Suhosin on the system-wide version of PHP, however, the InterWorx php was left as-is.

Any ideas as to what would cause this to happen?


Hi Alex,

Try this. Edit the /etc/my.cnf file, and under the [mysqld] section, add


Then restart the MySQL server, and try phpMyAdmin again.



That worked. Thanks!
