This horrible error message on phpMyAdmin:
Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client
On my local MySQL installation. I am running PHP 4 and MySQL 4.1 and phpMyAdmin on Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” worked like a charm, despite the fact that I’m not using 10.4, I’m running 10.3.9.
Huzzah for tools that work locally when one has no net connection!
