This can occurr if you set an incorrect "Plugin" on "User" table in "mysql" database.

Connecting from PHP using Authentication parameters, from a user with incorrect "Plugin", makes PHP can't connect, and shown the error message "Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client"

Best regards

--secure-auth is default on after 5.6.?

you may need to disable this also if using an old mysql client.
