Apache 2.2 authn_dbd MySQL centos
Posted on 2014-11-22
Seem using authn_dbd MySQL is somewhat new and searching the net only finds lots and lots of people having problems or overly complicated documents on how to set things up.
I'll give the experts a shot and see if someone would be kind enough to walk me through this and help me get this working on Centos 6.5.
Currently, I am using htaccess and htpasswd to authenticate connections to a web site. I already have a MySQL table called htaccess where my username/password are being stored. This is generated by another application and I then run a bash script to extract the credentials now and then, rebuilding my .htpasswd file.
Now, I'd like to stop using the .htpasswd file and use the database directly for authentication.
I have both mod_authn_dbd.so and mod_dbd.so enabled and am ready to do the steps needed to convert from .htpasswd to db.
The server is Centos 6.5.
