Description toon 2011-06-13 08:51:25 UTC

I used mod-auth-mysql to authenticate a website against a userdatabase in MySQL.
After emerging the package and adding the AUTH_MYSQL define to apache,
apache refused to start up, complaining about an invalid LoadModule statement:

apache2: Syntax error on line 152 of /etc/apache2/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 3 of /etc/apache2/modules.d/12_mod_auth_mysql.conf: Can't locate API module structure `apache2_mysql_auth_module' in file /usr/lib64/apache2/modules/ /usr/lib64/apache2/modules/ undefined symbol: apache2_mysql_auth_module

I checked out the source and discovered that de LoadModule statement was wrong.
In the installed file (/etc/apache2/modules.d/12_mod_auth_mysql.conf) it reads:

LoadModule apache2_mysql_auth_module modules/

However, it SHOULD read:

LoadModule auth_mysql_module modules/

The mod-auth-mysql loads and functions properly after applying this change.
Please modify the file /usr/portage/www-apache/mod-auth-mysql/files/12_mod_auth_mysql.conf in the ebuild accordingly.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge mod-auth-mysql
2. add define AUTH_MYSQL in /etc/conf.d/apache2
3. restart apache
Actual Results:  
Load of the module mod-auth-mysql fails. (see descryption)

Expected Results:  
Load of the module mod-auth-mysql succeeds.

See descryption.
