Subject Documentation of "mod_authn_dbd" should clarify the use of "AuthDBDUserRealmQuery" and "AuthDBDUserPWQuery"
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2007 20:48:58 GMT

I felt a little bit misleaded by the current documentation when trying 
to use the new module "mod_authn_dbd".

As far as I figured out, is the query configured with 
"AuthDBDUserRealmQuery" only used when mod_authn_dbd acts as an 
"AuthDigestProvider" (AuthBasicProvider -> AuthDBDUserPWQuery).

Additionally it should be mentioned that "AuthDBDUserRealmQuery" has to 
return a MD5-hash of "<user>:<realm>:<password>" and not an "encrypted 
password". So linking to the new document "Password Formats" would be nice.

thanks for your efforts,

in the usage description of "AuthDBDUserRealmQuery" and 
"AuthDBDUserPWQuery" seems to have a needless comma before "and" ?!
