I keep getting the following warnings in my debug log:
PHP Warning: mysqli_real_connect(): The server requested authentication method unknown to the client [mysql_old_password] in /wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1379 PHP Warning: mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2054): The server requested authentication method unknown to the client in /wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1379 PHP Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1409
Over and over again, I'm running the following setup:
PHP - 5.5.6 MYSQL - 5.5.38 WordPress - 4.0.1
All my plugins are up to date and there's not many that I haven't used before and this problem only seems to occur on this host so I've ruled out plugins. I've looked up this problem but I don't understand what any of the answers are actually saying:
It sounds like that some user has entered a password too long to be hashed? And if that's the case, how would I go about handling that, resetting everybodies password? Could somebody maybe explain in layman terms what exactly the problem is?
