Connection error with PHP 5 and MySQL 4

Just like my hosting company, 1and1, is about to do, other companies will discontinue support of PHP version 4 as well. When they do, you may receive an error such as:

Database Connection Failed
Error: Connecting to 3.22, 3.23 & 4.0 servers is not supported (2054)
Function Performed: CONNECT
Database Type: mysql

Fatal error: Attempt to connect to database dbname on failed in /*/htdocs/SITE/lib/adodb.functions.php on line *


This error means that you need to upgrade your database to version 5 in order to work with PHP 5.
