MySQL Password Errors at BlueHost

Since August 12 (about two weeks now), I was getting this error from the MySQL program mysqldump:

Warning: Using unique option prefix pass instead of password is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use the full name instead.

I’m not sure what changed or what got upgraded, but I was able to track down the problem. ┬áIt has nothing to do with command syntax.

In the account directory, which is the one with the account name, one level above public_html, or just “~” on the command line, I found a file named “.my.cnf” with the “pass=” option in it.

To fix the problem, find that file and change “pass=” to “password=”.

I have also forwarded this information to the BlueHost help desk.
