Dear all,

I was wondering if anyone is using eclipse php plugin - PDT ( If yes, could anyone share how to set the connection to a MySQL db???

I've used XAMPP for Windows (

Many thanks in advance,

Google is also your friend.

Eclipse, I believe, is Java based and so you need a MySQL JDBC driver to connect.

Eclipse is no way connected in any form with XAMPP so you should direct your questions to the appropriate Eclipse PDT resources some of which I have included links to above to get the correct and official information.

You could be waiting some time for a reply in this forum but in the mean time doing some research on your own might be much quicker and rewarding.

Thanks for the link but I think we already know about it. :roll:

Can you tell me how you connect it? I do not quite get what it is said. How should I install them? I'm using phpEclipse 1.1.8, Eclipse version 3.2.0 and XAMPP version 1.4.9. I plan to use the Apache that is available in XAMPP but the mySQL separately... Should I use the jdbc or the odbc? Previously I have used Eclipse and mySQL for jsp project. It works fine previously but in php I'm having this problem.

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in C:\xampp-win32-1.4.9\xampp\eclipse\workspace\PB\reg_form.php on line 8

My previous mySQL (mysql 5.0) is installed in Program Files. XAMPP is installed in C. I had a copy of eclipse with the workspace (containing my php project) in XAMPP folder. Previously I installed eclipse in Program Files too...
Thank you...
