Cannot get Apache httpd mod_dbd to work

Postby someoneelse » 27. December 2017 23:56

I am trying to setup a mysql authorization function in my XAMPP php5.6 developer server. However, I can't get the server to start up. I have tried numerous variations to the code, including commenting out the lines beginning with DB. #ing them out makes the server start up, but gives a HTTP500 error when I try to view the pages requiring authentication, because it doesn't know what database to look in.

Code: Select all
Apache/2.4.26 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.2l PHP/5.6.31

Code: Select all
DBDriver mysql
DBDParams host
<Directory "E:\xampp\htdocs\shouldnotbesecure\shouldbesecure">
Options -Indexes
    AuthType Basic
"Please Login"
AuthBasicProvider dbd
# mod_authz_core configuration
Require valid-user
"SELECT password FROM users WHERE username = %s"

loaded in httpd.config (coming from phpinfo() command):

Code: Select all
Loaded Modules
    core mod_win32 mpm_winnt http_core mod_so mod_access_compat mod_actions mod_alias mod_allowmethods mod_asis mod_auth_basic mod_authn_core mod_authn_dbd mod_authn_dbm mod_authn_file mod_authn_socache mod_authnz_fcgi mod_authz_core mod_authz_dbd mod_authz_dbm mod_authz_groupfile mod_authz_host mod_authz_user mod_autoindex mod_cgi mod_dav_lock mod_dbd mod_dir mod_env mod_headers mod_include mod_info mod_isapi mod_logio mod_log_config mod_log_debug mod_log_forensic mod_cache_disk mod_mime mod_negotiation mod_proxy mod_proxy_ajp mod_rewrite mod_session_dbd mod_setenvif mod_socache_dbm mod_socache_shmcb mod_ssl mod_status mod_php5

Nothing shows up in the error log when I try to start things with these configs, displayed in the system output is the following generic message:

The problem is your missing apr_dbd_mysql.dll as well as libmysql.dll, both of which xampp doesn't supply.
