I've just recently set up Apache 2.0.55 on a Windows 2003 box. One of the requirements is to authenticate users against an already existing phpbb database hosted on a local mySql instance. After looking around it appears that mod_auth_mysql fits the bill. Unfortunately I cannot get the module to compile for me. Whenever I try to create the .so, I get all kinds of weird syntax errors.

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction with either a different module or some hints on compiling the mod. I have to admit that I'm a rookie when it comes to Apache, and building the modules, so please bare with me.

Thanks in advance...

mod_auth_mysql should not work with phpbb because the encrypted passwords in it.
At the download page here I use mod_auth_phpbb.

Thanks Steffen,

I appreciate the help and the quick reply. Out of brute determination I would like to build the module myself, after so much trial and error with mod_auth_mysql. When I try making the file with Visual Studio 2005 command line, I get the following error:

C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin>apxs -c -L"\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\lib\opt" -I"\Progra

What am I missing?
