I got this combination (SugarCRM 2.0.1c on FC3, MySQL 4.1.7 ( Client API version 3.23.58), PHP 4.3.9, Apache 2.0.52)
The installation of SugarCRM stopped at Step5 (Unable to select database). I did convert the the sugarcrm mysql user using the old_password() conversion, also tried to use the mysql root user. The installation still did not go through.
I also tried to install SugarCRMGA 2.0.1. That didn't work either.
The SugarCRMGA 2.0.1 works fine with MySQL 4.0.22 on a Debian SARGE server.
I don't know what the problem is now. Is it the MySQL version or the SugarCRM? I could connect to the sugar database with the same mysql user that I supplied during the SugarCRM installation.
If someone has any idea, please advise.
