Description Rich Bowen 2016-08-05 13:52:34 UTC
The mod_dbd docs link to http://people.apache.org/~niq/dbd.html which appears to be very old. This needs to be updated to the current state of affairs, and moved into the official docs tree.

Does it make sense to move this to the wiki first for initial editing passes?

Possibly. I'm planning to ping niq about it when he shows up on IRC. I'm not an expert on this topic, so I have no idea what updates are needed, if any.

It's on people/~niq/ 'cos it's over-and-above the level of standard module documentation, and I didn't see any obvious place to put it in the docs tree.  From memory, at least.

I agree it would be better somewhere in the main docs under svn, where someone would no doubt have noticed years ago that parts of it went out of date.

Not convinced it needs to go to wiki.  If we just decide where it belongs in docs tree, I'm happy to drop it in.

Perhaps we can use this PR to list things that need updating?  Most obviously,
- MySQL long since included in apr.
- Availability section probably best just dropped.

Some modules (ssl, rewrite) have supplementary docs. There's precedent and we have the directory/url structure to support this.  Put it in /dbd.
