Hi Sidney,

you are using mysql 5.x as server, right? Then you should insert the following 
into your /etc/mysql/my.cnf

old_passwords = true # inserted by debconf
# Activate the above for connections from hosts running Debian Woody/Sarge!
# Prior to MySQL 5.0, user passwords were stored in a rather weak way. This
# has been improved with the drawback that client programs shipped with
# Debian Woody/Sarge (technically: linked against libmysqlclient.so.12 or
# earlier) cannot connect any more if either their account has either been
# created or their password has been modified using MySQL 5.0.
# See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/old-client.html

With kind regards, Jan.
