I spent 10 hours trying to compile.  I tried different orders.

I tried so many variations it was maddening.

Anyway, I wound up not needing the crypt function after all.

I thought I was suppose to be using encrypted passwords.  What I was really
supposed to be using was encrypted digest.

Any, it works now.

I wonder if I'm the first to write mod_auth_digest authenticating against

Hi Michele,

try another order of your library flags (e. g. -lcrypt before 
-lmysqlclient). This often helps on some platforms...

I wrote the mod_auth_digest authenticating against mysql.


I can't compile.

apxs -i -a -I/usr/include/mysql -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -luuid -lrt
-lcrypt -lm -lz -c mod_auth_digest.c

I've tried using an extra -I and -L for crypt.

When I compile with both, I get crypt is an undefined symbol.

When I run apxs, I get the message:
If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
during execution
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
during linking
- use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
- have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/'

I've tried setting the environment variables, modifying /etc/ 
-WI, but it's still not working.

Does anyone know how to compile with libraries?


Other modules are compiling with crypt.  I can't figure out where I'm 
wrong here.
