Under Windows XP, I have Ruby installed and running, and I have mysql
installed and running. I want to use these together.
I’ve used “gem install mysql” to install the client between the two:
mysql 2.7.3 (mswin32)
Now this statement:
dbh = Mysql.real_connect(“localhost”, “root”, “mysql”, “test”)
Gives me this error:
Error code: 1251
Error message: Client does not support authentication protocol requested
by server; consider upgrading MySQL client
mysql 2.7.3 was the newest client in the list.
Any help would be appreciated.
