Unable to query: Unknown column 'Show_db_priv' in 'field list'

I'm trying to add a database user in my Plesk and I've got this error:

Unable to query: Unknown column 'Show_db_priv' in 'field list'

0: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/database_mysql.inc:1 psaerror(string "Unable to query: Unknown column 'Show_db_priv' in 'field list'") 1: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/class.DataBase.php3:2 database_mysql->useradd(string "thierry", string "abc123", string "plain") 2: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/domains/databases/db_usr_edit.php3:2 database->adduser(string "thierry", string "abc123")

I've done - /etc/init.d/mysqld condrestart, /etc/init.d/mysqld restart, /etc/init.d/psa stopall, /etc/init.d/psa start

But none of those works...

What do I have to... How can I create the Show_db_priv field?

I'm using mysql 4.0.21
I'm trying to creat users with Plesk 7.1

And I don't know how to use the mysql command that you writed.
Ravi GoruTechnical ConsultantCommented:

I guess .. Plesk 7 uses mysql 3.23.8 ..  or posgres 7.2.4 ..

btw.. there are some differences in mysql 3.23. and mysql 4 +  and for manipulateing those differences there are some scripts available..

anyway.. the simplest procedure is .. to try using the recommended version of databases..!!

let me know.. what r u interested in ..?

Downgrade to mysql 3.23...

Because Pleslk 7 Reloaded doesn't work with MySQL 4 on a Red Hat 9 OS

How can I downgrade now to mysql 3.23?

Everything is okay now - I've found this file... MySQL 4.0 can Work on Plesk 7 :o)
