I tried installing the latest version of Media Wiki on my site which is
using MySQL 4.0.22-standard, PHP 4.3.10 and Apache 1.3.33 (Unix). I'm
getting an error regarding the SQL when installing:
PHP 4.3.10: ok
Warning: PHP's register_globals option is enabled. MediaWiki will work
correctly, but this setting increases your exposure to potential security
vulnerabilities in PHP-based software running on your server. You should
disable it if you are able.
PHP server API is apache; ok, using pretty URLs (index.php/Page_Title)
Have XML / Latin1-UTF-8 conversion support.
PHP is configured with no memory_limit.
Have zlib support; enabling output compression.

PHP is linked with old MySQL client libraries. If you are using a
MySQL 4.1server and have problems connecting to the database, see

Error selecting database mysite_wikidb: 1044 Access denied for user:

I have no idea what to do to get this to work on my site with the version of
MySQL that is running. Do I need to use a different version of Media Wiki?
Or is there something I can do to make this work?
