I have recently upgraded from MySQL 3.23 to MySQL 4. Upon upgrading (which I ended up doing twice, once from scratch) the WinMySQLAdmin doesn't show any of the server info that it used to (such as the uptime / open tables / slow queries on the 'Environment' tab or the databases and tables on the 'Database' tab). The sever still runs correctly (my PHP scripts using it work and both MySQL-CC and MySQL Administrator still work properly) and the traffic lights correctly indicate the server status.

How to repeat:
Upgrade from MySQL 3.23 to MySQL 4.0 as per the instuctions in the documentation (for Windows). After the first run of the server you may need to end the process using Ctrl+Alt+Del since it doesn't seem to end correctly and this leads to the error 1067 as reported in the documentation. Start the service using WinMySQLAdmin.

Are the username and password keys under section [WinMySQLAdmin] in
the my.ini file an actual user in the new 4.0.18 server ?

Ahh...the new my.ini file had no user/password keys. Adding them fixed it. Thanks.

      BUG#3799 (backup_commit_blocker test hangs):
      The problem is that SELECTing from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST (to show state
      of the threads) is not realiable and hangs sometimes.
      This patch comments-out selects from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST as they
      are not essential for the test.
