    Bijo i have one question, in that site they are saying

    #

    Upgrade all client programs to use a 4.1.1 or newer client library.
    #

    When connecting to the server with a pre-4.1 client program, use an account that still has a pre-4.1-style password.

    but how can i do this?

    How to fix this in mysql related new installations(Like Oscommerce and phpbb)
