    I am having trouble connecting to a MySQL database that is hosted on cPanel.

    This is the error:

    My cPanel version is: 11.32.4 (build 15)

    Do I need to update my cPanel such that I can connect to the MySQL database with a new style of password? If not, how can I connect? I am trying to connect from the sample Visual Basic application that comes with the new MySQL install.

    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    You can browse to the "SQL" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings" and ensure the following option is enabled:

    "Use pre-4.1-style MySQL® passwords"

    Thank you.
