Make sure you have the box checked that says Use old style (4.0) passwords with mySQL 4.1+ in Tweak Settings

does your forum compatible with the MySQL 4.1 due to the query syntax between MySQL 4.0 and MySQL 4.1 ? there are some major changes on the MySQL 4.0 to MySQL 4.1, do you have a backup copy of your database before it is being upgraded?

Open up my.cnf and add the following:

[mysqld]
old-passwords.

I found that the old password feature in cPanel didnt work for me. If there appears to be no connectivity, reset the database password and update your forum configuration file.
