    Our Linux x86 package will work on your server. =)

    x86 means any cpu that supports the 386 or higher intel compatible instruction set.

    the mysql-client in the installed php is too old. you need to recompile php or make litespeed use another php on the server which is compiled to a newer mysql-lib.

    More information can be found here:

    I ended up modifying the local mySQL accounts like the following:

    SET PASSWORD FOR 'eventumuser'@'%' = OLD_PASSWORD('password');
    SET PASSWORD FOR 'eventumuser'@'localhost' = OLD_PASSWORD('password');
    SET PASSWORD FOR 'eventumuser'@'localhost.localdomain' = OLD_PASSWORD('password');

    One of the major difference between Mysql and 4 and 5 protocol is that the password hashing length has been increased. Thus Mysql 4 account password no longer works under 5.

    In the Mysql 5 install directory, there should be a upgrade script to convert the passwords to the new format.

    Regardless, there are much more important changes between 4 and 5 and it is still highly recommended to use the Mysql 5 client API, recompile php with mysq 5 support, than use Mysql 4 api with mysql 5 workarounds.

    One of the biggest improvement in Mysql 5 is the binary protocol/prepared statements. It will resolve most of the sql injection problems that is all the rage these days. Unfortunately, too many opensource apps still target Mysql 4 users for compatibility. Can't blame them but I would rather get security than compatibility.
