I'm considering using PAM / NSS along with MySQL for authentication
purposes (Unix accounts, FTP accounts, email accounts and the like). Has
anyone used either the pam-mysql or the nss-mysql modules for this purpose
and would they recommend them? The other option is, of course, LDAP, which
is probably better suited to the job of authentication, but for what I
want to do MySQL seems overall a more effective solution.
So, any suggestions, caveats, etc?
Thanks and regards,
