MySQL Connection Difficulties - Help

If you go to the link below,


We are getting the error below,

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in /home/theowl/public_html/TheOwlShop/Connections/localhost.php on line 9

Fatal error: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client in /home/theowl/public_html/TheOwlShop/Connections/localhost.php on line 9

Below is the current localhost.php page information

# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_localhost = "localhost";
$database_localhost = "theowl_oakridge";
$username_localhost = "theowl_billj";
$password_localhost = "*family01";
$localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

Below is the current global information for the database:

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "The Owl Shop" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Address = "5900 West Pioneer Parkway";
$WAGLOBAL_City = "Arlington";
$WAGLOBAL_State = "TX";
$WAGLOBAL_Zip = "76013";
$WAGLOBAL_Country = "US";
$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/";
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/";

Please help, we are confused as to how to correct the issue.
