I’m running mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.15, for Win32 (ia32) on a
I’m trying to build the Depot application described in Chap. 5 of Agile
Dev. w. Rails, © 2005.
The generated database.yml file in depot\config contains several entries
“socket: /path/to/your/mysql.sock”. I couldn’t find an “mysql.sock”
anywhere on my system.
Thomas’ depiction of the .yml file includes the line “host: localhost”
instead, so I made the switch to that instead of the “socket: …:”
Following Thomas’ lead, I ran the cmd “ruby script/generate scaffold
Admin”. It ran fine until it reported “Client does not support
authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL
client”. Other Rails examples have worked fine, so I don’t believe any
upgrade will solve my problem.
Any ideas how I can get around this roadblock?
