Re: Does xoops support MySql 4.1.7?


I think that from some version (4.1.4g or something), MySQL uses encryptet password access. The problem is that XOOPS supports only MySQL connector and you'll need mysqli.
You have two choices
1. Put your mysql/users table into unhashed pasword form, so You could use MySQL extension. See the MySQL help how to do it.
2. What I would appreciate more too. To rebuild the base database class to support mysqli connector. I wouldn't be happy to send plaintext passwords espacially in these days of security freaks. I actually don't know why this base class was not rewritten yet to support (actually only wrap)PEAR:B class.

Hope this help.
