  • Ticket #136 – Description

    initial v2  
    11The sql.mit.edu servers currently have `old_passwords=1` set in the mysqld configuration for compatibility with MySQL 3.x and 4.x clients. The [http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/php-mysqlnd/ MySQL native driver in PHP 5.3] only knows how to deal with [http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/password-hashing.html new-style passwords]; this will probably bite us hard when we move to PHP 5.3 as part of upgrading to Fedora 13.

    3 We'll need to either figure out if we can do the backward-compatible but insecure hack of making PHP clients able to use old-style passwords (disable the native driver? patch it?), or if we can drop support for MySQL clients that don't support new-style passwords, i.e., 4.x and below.
