    Since I upraded to 7.6, Wordpress no longer communicates with MySQL. I can connect to the database using MySQL admin utility using the same username and password that I have in the config file, but wordpress says:

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    This might have something to do with the changed security model/hash used in the newer releases of MySQL. I have run into problems like this before with stand alone MySQL installs. I could never find a usable solution and had to use an older version.

    I upgraded to MySQL 5.0 in hopes of it helping, but it didn't, so you may be on the right track.

    Is anyone else using a current version of MySQL with Wordpress?
