WordPress 2

Tried to install WordPress 2 and screwed the privileges somehow…
A handy php page found: test5.php gave me the error message (Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client) and this gave me the cure:

***
Alternatively, use UPDATE and FLUSH PRIVILEGES:

mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password = OLD_PASSWORD(‘newpwd’)
-> WHERE Host = ‘some_host’ AND User = ‘some_user’;
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
***

fixed it!
