    I have no idea what 'old_passwords=1' does. I do know it is not meant to be there when running MySQL 5.0.92 (have no idea how it got there).

    Is it ok just to remove it? or do I need to change user password (I as said, I don't know how it affects the system).


    Regards,

    old_passwords was used primarily when updating from MySQL 4.0 to 4.1. It should no longer be needed, and you should be able to comment it out or remove it.

    Just to clarify, though, due to the thread title, you did mean /etc/my.cnf rather than my.ini file, right? The MySQL configuration file is /etc/my.cnf instead.
