i have developed CMS system using drupal in my localhost. I want to host this in website. Please provide me the steps.

When i copied the folder from local host to ftp location the following error occurs.
Unable to connect to database server
If you still have to install Drupal, proceed to the installation page.

If you have already finished installing Drupal, this either means that the username and password information in your settings.php file is incorrect or that we can't connect to the MySQL database server. This could mean your hosting provider's database server is down.

The MySQL error was: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client.

Currently, the username is Dhandoradb and the database server is

Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
For more help, see the Installation and upgrading handbook. If you are unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your hosting provider.

Please help me to sort this.

Doesn't look like a problem with Drupal code... can you tell me which MySQL client you use? mysql or mysqli? And what version PHP? Is the mysql/mysqli client compiled? Do you use the correct port?

This is a support request.

This error means that you are using an old mysql client library with a new mysql server. See
