Missing Apache mod_DBD packages in Centos 7

I've got .htaccess set up from an older server (migrating from CentOS 5 to 7) to query login info from my MySQL/MariaDB database.

I cannot seem to find the mod_dbd Apache modules anywhere for CentOS 7 (especially in YUM) to read the database for the sites user authentication.

Any ideas where to look?

Hi!

You could, as  Apache on Centos 7 and Centos 5 is 2.x  , try to copy the module from Centos 5 server to Centos 7 and put it in /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/ directory.
Add the module name to the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf in the LoadModule section
Then restart the Apache server and list running (enabled) modules using
apachectl -M | sort

If you see the name mod_DBD in that list you have successfully added the module to the webserver.

Regards,

It turned out that some of the modules were loaded. I did copy one of the mysql modules across and had some better luck.
 Thanks :)
