Subject [users@httpd] digest authentication with apache2.2 and mod_authn_dbd
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2007 03:42:56 GMT
I'm trying to set up digest authentication with mod_authn_dbd by
adapting the basic authentication examples and looking at the
reference for mod_auth_digest, and I'm getting the error "No DBD Authn
configured!" Everything appears fine when the server starts, but when
I hit the protected directory, that happens. I looked at the source
for mod_authn_dbd, and there are apparently four different errors that
can trigger that message, and I have no idea which one it is.

/etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dbd.conf (included at line 196 of apache2.conf)
#Database Management

#Use the PostgreSQL driver
DBDriver pgsql

#Connection string: database name and login credentials
DBDParams "dbname=xxxxxx user=apache password=xxxxxx"

#Parameters for Connection Pool Management
DBDMin  1
DBDKeep 2
DBDMax  10
DBDExptime 60
