    What would cause this? I installed mod_auth_mysql and every once in a while its commented out of the apache config. I check bash_history everytime and no one has logged in and made any system changes it does it on its own it would appear ?? :confused:

    If you have cPanel set to auto-update, it will not compile any custom modules you may have added when apache gets updated. This is the likely cause of these directives being commented out.

    Auto-update is ISP escape clause?

    Sorry to take this a bit off-topic, but when my ISP/hosting service tells me that mod_auth_mysql is not available is it because it is considered a custom module or is a big deal for an ISP to add it and keep it in sync with their other provided Apache modules?

    My sense is that its likely a "lazy thing" on the part of the ISP, but I prefer not to hurl bricks if they have a solid premise for their policy.

    TIA and best to all.

    PS..the ISP claims to have 40,000 accounts.

    it's probably not a lazy thing. installing mod_auth_mysql and keeping it up to date adds a manual step into an otherwise completely automated [cpanel's updates] process. if they have a decent ammount of servers, lets say over a thousand [heck, even over 10 would be a pain], this simple install becomes a huge burden.

    my guess is that they are not just blowing you off.

    Still the case?

    I need to support mod_auth_radius in apache and the PECL package "radius" for PHP. What I have read in this forum is very bad news - if I understand it correctly, if I want to support these extra modules I need to recompile apache myself every time cpanel updates.

    However, this sentance from the update page in cpanel gives me hope:

    "Dynamic modules that were previously compiled into apache will not be removed."

    Does this mean that .so modules that I refer to in the httpd.conf won't be commented out when cpanel updates?

    Thanks,
    - geddes
