localhost connection problem
Authored by: kevin11 on Jun 11, '05 08:49:03PM

I have similar problems, but a different error msg:

Connection Error
Could not connect to MySQL instance at localhost.
Error: Unknown system variable 'sql_mode' (code 1193)

I don't even know where to begin to look for the solution to this and I know the username and pass are correct because I get a different error msg when I change them

Any Ideas???

Check the version of MySQL you're running. I just realized I'm running version 3.23 (for legacy purposes) and the client shows as only compatible with MySQL 4.0 and up. This could be the cause of the problem. (I get the same error, too.)
