It's not the DB version that matters. It's the client version and the password.

1. Make sure you're using the most recent stable version of PHP, and
2. Reset the password as explained here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/old-client.html

The account you are trying to connect with is using an old password hash.. read more inside the link

My favorite hosting company is refusing to upgrade the MySQL software for the authentication even though they have upgraded to MySQL 5.  They say it would 'break too many things'.  So I can't use PHP 5.3 to connect to my database, I have to use PHP 5.2 or lower.
