    Does anyone know of a guide or maybe some pointers about this module installing and configuring in XUbunto 8.04 server. Here is my problem.

    I am trying to get a protected directory authentication set up using the usernames & passwords in a mySQL database table. I have loaded from Synaptic package manager the LibApache2-mod-auth-mysql file it is in the /etc/apache2/mods-available directory as auth_mysql.load when I run from terminal the command
    sudo a2enmod auth_mysql.load sudo asks for password which I enter and then I get This module does not exist! error. Is this not the correct command to move a module to mods-enabled directory? Would it be wrong just to copy this file from mods-available to mods-enabled? Does anyone outhere know why this is happening what am I doing wrong?

    Any help or a pointer to a guide setting up MySQL databases as htaccess files would be very appreciated.

    thanks in advance

    Thanks Falco for your response,

    I was including the .load extension to the command. I now have the module loaded. I have this partially working in my windows XP WAMP, I am trying to convert to using a LAMP as you can tell I am new to servers in Ubuntu. When I say partially, I have the WAMP html pages password protected by using a PHP script controlling the private areas by checking for usernames and passwords stored in MySQL it seems to work fine on the surface the only thing is a user can copy the address of a private page and then later reopen by coping the address back to the address bar. I now know that this has to been done by Apache authenticating a protected directory. Do you have any pointers or know of any guides on configuring and setting up protected directories that will help me get this going?

    Thanks again
