[users@httpd] Re: Special characters in password for mod_dbd


I have no idea why so many separators have been allowed.
I googled a bit yesterday, and didn't find anything useful. Most other mysql connectors I've found only use ';'.

But it is documented this way since a long time in APR.

Removing some separators could break some existing configuration. So, IMHO, it is unlikely to be accepted. We maybe should have some way to escape some characters to be allowed these delimiters to be used as "normal" characters.

I cross-post to APR dev@ mailing list to have others feed-back on it.

Thank you

I was looking for such info and didn't found.

Why so much chars left for params split? Should I fire a request or this will not be changed in future by concept?

This seems to be mysql APR driver specific.

For some reasons, in APR, in function dbd_mysql_open(), fields are split according to delimiters in:
     static const char *const delims = " \r\n\t;|,";

See Remarks about MySQL at:

According to the code, there is no way to avoid the "incorrect" split of the DBDParams parameter.
I guess that your best option is to modify the password.
