FAQ

From the package documentation:

  1. What on earth is PAM anyway?
  2. Are there any tools for changing passwords etc. that are in PAM-MySQL?
  3. I need to retrieve misc. UNIX user information such as one's home directory coming from MySQL. Can pam-mysql do this?
  4. How can I quickly tell in which way a given password is encrypted, PASSWORD(), CRYPT()-ed, or md5()?
  5. I set up saslauthd (of Cyrus-SASL) to use PAM-MySQL for authentication and noticed some authentication mechanisms such as CRAM-MD5 don't work. Why?
  6. PAM-MySQL is licensed under GNU Public License and I heard that GPL requires the program that links to a GPL'ed shared binary object at runtime also being covered by GPL. Is it safe to use PAM-MYSQL from a program with a license that is incompatible with GPL?
  7. I was able to build PAM-MySQL without problems, but MD5 doesn't work. Why?
  8. I could not build pam-mysql on Solaris with the official MySQL binary package. How can I fix this?
