mod_auth_mysql - status (does md5 encryption work on WinXP)?

Postby jjrohrer » 03. November 2003 23:33

Hi all,

The situation:
I'm trying to use phpBB2 (www.phpBB2.com) as an authentication server for the rest of my website. phpBB2 used md5 to encrypt its passwords see http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=120184&highlight=modauthmysql). I'm running windows XP Pro.

The approach:
I turned on mod_auth_mysql following the on screan instructions. I then modified mod_auth_mysql.conf to protect the directory called [root]/jj/restricted. I got some mod_auth_mysql syntax from here http://modauthmysql.sourceforge.net/README My mod_auth_mysql file now looks like this:
Code: Select all
   <Location /restricted>
       AuthName "MySQL Secured Place"
       AuthType Basic
        require valid-user
        AuthMySQLHost localhost
        AuthMySQLDB webauth
        AuthMySQLUser testuser
       AuthMySQLPassword authmysql
        AuthMySQLUserTable user_pwd
       AuthMySQLNameField name
        AuthMySQLPasswordField pass
        ## AuthMySQLGroupTable user_grp (here do not modify this for the simple test!)
        ## AuthMySQLGroupField group (here do not modify this for the simple test!)
       AuthMySQLCryptedPasswords Off
    </Location>



   <Location /jj/restricted>
       AuthName "phpBB users only"
       AuthType Basic
        require valid-user
        AuthMySQLHost localhost
        AuthMySQLDB site_2003_oct_30_2
        AuthMySQLUser testuser
       AuthMySQLPassword authmysql
        AuthMySQLUserTable phpbb_users
       AuthMySQLNameField username
        AuthMySQLPasswordField user_password
        ## AuthMySQLGroupTable user_grp (here do not modify this for the simple test!)
        ## AuthMySQLGroupField group (here do not modify this for the simple test!)
       AuthMySQLCryptedPasswords On
        AuthMySQLMD5Passwords On

    </Location>



The problem:
When I start apache, i get the following error:

E:\xampp7\apache\bin>apache
Syntax error on line 33 of E:/xampp7/apache/conf/mod_auth_mysql.conf:
Invalid command 'AuthMySQLMD5Passwords', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration


Analysis:
I don't think the command is misspelled. My question is: has anyone gotten password encryption to work? Has anyone specifically made mod_auth_mysql work on windows with encryption in general or md5 in particular? Perhaps I need md5 installed on my computer (but I wouldn't expect the above error).
Further thoughts 2003 Nov 11
Perhaps it needs access to the MD5 command line utility common on *nix systems. gnuwin32.sourceforge.net has such a utility for windows - Has anyone explored this (I haven't - so perhaps its obvious?).


Any suggestions?
Thanks!
