I have just installed PHP 5.0.2 and MySQL 4.1.7. After several hours of attempting to connect to MySQL through CDX abstration layer I discovered that CDX was using mysql_connect function calls. This of course is no longer supported on MySQL 4.1 upwards. Instead the call should have been the improved version e.g. mysqli_connect.

Any way I search for an answer to my problem before comming here and thought I better let everyone know before they waste hours finding out them selves.

CDX database abstraction layer does not support MySQL versions 4.1 upwards

Reproduce code:
$sedco = dbx_connect(DBX_MYSQL, "localhost", $DBNAME, $DBUSER, $DBPASS); //Create a connection to MYSQL 4.1.7 database

Expected result:
a connection should be made to the database, the connection worked when I used MySQLi Extension instead e.g. $sedco = mysqli_connect("localhost", "$DBUSER", "$DBPASS", "$DBNAME"); //Create a connection to MYSQL 4.1.7 database

Actual result:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Sedco\test.php on line 57
Unable to connect to database
