» About this module

This module provides both authentication and authorization for the Apache 2.2 webserver like mod-authnz-ldap . It uses a MySQL database to retrieve user and group informations.
This module is necessary because the APR library of the Apache webserver changes a lot of things. The existing MySQL authentication and authorization modules work only with the Apache < 2.2.
In the Apache 2.2 trunk is a new database access framework called mod-dbd but due to licence issues there is no MySQL driver for this. With the mod-dbd and mod-authn-dbd module it is possible to provide authentication and authorization services against a database (but not for MySQL).
The next steps :
  1. Download the source code
  2. Compile and install this module
  3. Create the required database tables
  4. Configure the Apache2 webserver
