I find it a bit strange that it is so difficult to find information about how to do this.
I want to configure my Apache2 to use mod_dbd when authenticating users. But I cannot find any examples or good descriptions anywhere about how to do this. How can I configure mod_dbd on my Apache-httpd installation?
I am using OsX and Apache 2.2. I hope there is a way to do this which is the same for both OsX and other Linux version.
I have asked this before wihtout any good answers. I assume it must be possible to do without any difficult recompiling of the Apache, etc.
The Apache documentation for this module contains an example that seems pretty clear - is that enough?
