Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2014-12-17 11:02:02 UTC
We will need to kill this for apache-2.4 as looks it's not compatible with it:

Comment 1 Brian Evans Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2014-12-17 15:29:56 UTC
Suggest replacing with APACHE_MODULES="mod_authn_dbd" and dev-libs/apr-util[mysql].

Note that there could be a performance issue under load according to https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_authn_dbd.html without 2.4's mod_authn_socache.

Not sure if mod_authz_dbd is also desired.  authn_dbd exists in 2.1+ while authz_dbd needs 2.4+

If I understand properly... mod_authn_dbd is provided by dev-libs/apr-util[mysql]?

Thanks for the info

mod_authn_dbd is part of apache provides the generic framework.  The apr_dbd_mysql driver is included in apr-utils[mysql]

Do we need to wait for apache-2.4 to be stabilized or that migration can also be done with 2.2? (and, then, people won't need to migrate later)

If mod_authz_dbd is needed by people, then 2.4 needs to be stable.

On this part, I'm not sure how this module normally would need to migrate (authn vs authz).

Perhaps more of the team could comment as well.
