i am getting this error, everything is hosted on godaddy.com but for some reason nothing is coming up

Database connection failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

while using all of the same information and connecting to the localhost it runs perfectly any suggestions?

ok i used


and did the
mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password = OLD_PASSWORD('newpwd')
-> WHERE Host = 'some_host' AND User = 'some_user';

after this i updated my database on godaddy didnt do anything...I am not using an old version of mysql and when i clicked what version i was using in godaddy, i clicked 5.0( when checked in the advanced settings on godaddy there version is
<li id="li_server_info">Server version: 5.0.45-log<li id="li_mysql_client_version">MySQL client version: 5.0.27<li id="li_mysql_proto">Protocol version: 10

could this difference be a problem?
my current version is 5.051b
could any of this be a problem with my config.inc.php file not being shared right or not having the correct values?
