I already have a list of users in a mysql database that I use for postfix smtp authentication/sasl. I wonder, whether the list can be used for http authentication 😀 . Well, let’s find out.

First of all, of course we must compile nginx to support http_auth_pam_module module.
download ngx_http_auth_pam_module-1.2.tar.gz

When compiling from source build as usual adding the -add-module option:

./configure --add-module=$PATH_TO_MODULE

My pam_mysql for postfix smtp authentication /etc/pam.d/smtp

auth required pam_mysql.so user=user passwd=pass host=localhost db=db table=mailbox usercolumn=username passwdcolumn=password crypt=1 md5=1 sqlLog=0

Nginx

Another Nginx module i’ve tested today, nginx-nonewlines , basically, this module same as Evan Miller’s nginx mod_strip module , Evan Miller’s mod_strip module removes unnecessary whitespace (spaces, tabs, and newlines) from HTML documents and automatically leaves comments as well as <pre></pre> tags untouched. while using using nginx-nonewlines we should define  <!–SC_OFF–> and  <!–SC_ON–> within the html code area that we’re intend to leaves them intact.

Here’s quick and dirty compiling nginx-nonewlines module

  • download the module
https://github.com/vedang/nginx-nonewlines/archives/master
  • add this line to ./configure step, compile and install
  # ./configure \
  ....
  ....
  --add-module=/path/to/vedang-nginx-nonewlines-ba02b59
  ....
  ....
  # make && make install

add folowwing directive to nginx’s config.
