Description:
i have read the documentation and according to it these variables should be usable. however the mysql server continues to tell me that mysql_connect() cannot be used for authentication aand i must updat my mysql client. it does this with EVERYTHING that uses it with php. including such known BB's like phpBB,invisionBoard and VB

Your problem is a php configuration problem, not a mysql problem.
