After working on this package some hours, I finally got a decent version ready to work. Today, I published in OKay's RPM repository RPMs for PAM MySQL 0.7 RC1. This is a module that allows PAM-aware applications to authenticate users through a MySQL database. Now configurable in terms of which host the database reside upon, which table and username and password column to interrogate.

This package supports Drupal 7 and Joomla 1.5 authentication scheme (for backwards compatibility). I have added some patches for debugging, so if it fails you will see in the Syslog log what is happening.

Sadly, RedHat and clones (CentOS, ClearOS included) don't include blowfish encryption ($2[axy}$\d{2}$ key). This is because a U.S. law that forbids encrypt algorithms to be exported (I am not a lawyer). So, using other encryption schemes will be good. Good news is that I know Mageia supports blowfish.

For those who may ask, yes! It works with MariaDB. And as far as I have been using it, you can put complex INNER JOIN requests.

RPM's are available for Centos 6 and 7. And you can find it if you type yum search pam_mysql.
