solve problems at the root-cause

Absolutely agree...

if a update of 3rd party software introduces problems it is very
clear where the root-cause is

Not necessarily.

Have you never heard of a case where updating one software reveals a bug in some other related software that was not apparent before?

Happens all the time.

Of course, it is very likely that you are correct, but...

- roll back that update or if that is not possible for whatever
reason escalate the problem at the 3rd party which introduced it

what other help do you expect

An answer to my very simple and specific GENERAL question that will help me to better troubleshoot this to ascertain precisely where the problem is.

if nobody else has a similar problem and there is for days no
repsonse it becomes even more clear that you seek at the wrong end of
the chain

The questions I asked and re-asked for a response to were GENERAL questions, ie:

1. What should this (error message) be saying? Something like:

"... ERROR: could not open MySQL5 connection to database..." ?

In other words, should the mysql4 be mysql5 in the error message?

No amount of googling has answered this, and no amount of googling has revealed if there is even a 'mysql4' vs 'mysql5' 'connection protocol', or if this error message is purely created by the reporting (3rd party) software.

Then my other question about maybe getting a little more debug logging without going into full debug logging mode. I have little experience troubleshooting these kinds of problems, which is why I am asking (I thought that would be obvious).
