	This module allows to use the unixodbc package with &kamailio;. It have been 
	tested with mysql and the odbc connector, but it should work also with 
	other database. The auth_db module works.

	<para>
	Prerequirement: you should first install unixodbc (or another program that 
	implements the odbc standard, such iodbc), your database, and the right 
	connector. Set the DSN in the odbc.ini file and the connector drivers in 
	the odbcinst.ini file.
	</para>
	</section>

	<section>
	<title>Configuring and Running</title>
	<para>
	In the openser.conf file, add the line:
	</para>
	<programlisting format="linespecific">
....
loadmodule "/usr/local/lib/kamailio/modules/db_unixodbc.so"
....
</programlisting>
	<para>
	You should also uncomment this:
	</para>
	<programlisting format="linespecific">
....
loadmodule "/usr/local/lib/kamailio/modules/auth.so"
loadmodule "/usr/local/lib/kamailio/modules/auth_db.so"
modparam("usrloc", "db_mode", 2)
modparam("auth_db", "calculate_ha1", yes)
modparam("auth_db", "password_column", "password")
....
</programlisting>
	<para>
	and setting the DSN specified in the odbc.ini, inserting this with the 
	url adding this line:
	</para>
	<programlisting format="linespecific">
....
modparam("usrloc|auth_db", "db_url", 
    "unixodbc://openser:openserrw@localhost/my_dsn")
....
</programlisting>
