I am getting this error:
ERROR 1251: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

It occurs when I hit "Change a User or Database Password"

How do I correct this?

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)
