Subject:pam and crypt using mysql
View as plain text  
sorry if this is not the right mailing list to ask this question, hope someone 
can point me to a better list in the case. 
My problem is that I'd like to use mysql as database for storing user accounts 
for different services, and I started using vsftpd. Now, following the 
instruction here I have 
to configure the pam module using crypt=2 and to store the user password thru 
the password function. However, this didn't work, and after a lot of trials I 
found that the only way I can make them working is using crypt=1 and storing 
password thru the encrypt function.
Anyone that can provide me a reason why I'm not able to use the password 
function? Does it depends on some module I'm missing (with regard to mysql) 
or to a misconfigured linux server?
