View Full Version : Re: Another Try---Using an Existing Mysql Server - MySqlVersion

2006-09-22, 10:20
Excellent...I think I am almost there...and thanks to everyone that responded. Now I am currently running MySql 4.1.10 and donít really want to upgrade yet as this is a large db with many other services using it and I need to test all sorts of other applications before upgrading, so is there a way to resolve this issue..below is the /tmp/slimserver.log entry after pointing to the existing db and trying to restart ss.

Carp::Clan::__ANON__(): DBI Connection failed: DBI connect('hostname=;port=3306;database=Sli mserver:mysql_socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock','stork',...) failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client at /usr/local/slimserver/CPAN/DBIx/Class/Storage/DBI.pm line 652

I'm seeing these same errors. I just deleted server/CPAN/DBI.pm and
it started just fine. Actually, my YAML::Syck is the wrong version,
too, so I have had to delete server/CPAN/YAML/Syck.pm whenever I
upgrade, too.

As long as you have the CPAN packages installed for yourself, it
should work right without the Slim-provided ones.
