  • A compatible system. mod_log_sql was authored and tested on systems based on Red Hat Linux (Red Hat, Mandrake), but the module should easily adapt to any modern distribution. mod_log_sql has also been ported successfully to Solaris and FreeBSD.

  • Apache 1.3 or 2.0, 1.2 is no longer supported, but may still compile. Ideally you should already have successfully compiled Apache and understand the process, but this document tries to make it simple for beginners.

  • The MySQL development headers. This package is called different things on different distributions. For example, Red Hat 6.x calls this RPM "MySQL-devel" whereas Mandrake calls it "libmysql10-devel." Both MySQL 3.23.x and 4.x are supported.

  • MySQL >= 3.23.15 configured, installed and running on either localhost or an accessible networked machine. You should already have a basic understanding of MySQL and how it functions.

  • Optionally, if you want to be able to log SSL information such as keysize or cipher, you need OpenSSL and mod_ssl installed.
