  That is not a problem, It was just an idea, simply write in your

 I personaly use 3.23.52 for development, but I am sure that 3.23.36 works, we use it. 
 What kind of communication error did you get ? Could you send me some error logs ?

  3.23.36 works for us, but we set the permissions in a little bit different way 
  (not by the ser_mysql script), but at least communication between ser and mysql seems
  to work fine.
