 1. Overview
 
    This is a module which provides MySQL connectivity for Kamailio. It
    implements the DB API defined in Kamailio.
 
 2. Dependencies
 
    2.1. Kamailio Modules
    2.2. External Libraries or Applications
 
 2.1. Kamailio Modules
 
    The following modules must be loaded before this module:
      * No dependencies on other Kamailio modules.
 
 2.2. External Libraries or Applications
 
    The following libraries or applications must be installed before
    running Kamailio with this module loaded:
      * mysql - the development libraries forthe Mysql database. In some
        Linux distributions named "libmysqlclient-dev".

 3. Parameters
b55c09b4
 
    3.1. ping_interval (integer)
    3.2. timeout_interval (integer)
    3.3. auto_reconnect (integer)
61c706ef
    3.4. insert_delayed (integer)
b55c09b4
 
 3.1. ping_interval (integer)
 
    Time interval in seconds to send ping messages to MySQL server in order
    to keep the connection open.
 
    Default value is 300 (5 min).
 
    Example 1.1. Set ping_interval parameter
 ...
 modparam("db_mysql", "ping_interval", 600)
 ...
 
 3.2. timeout_interval (integer)
 
    Time interval (in seconds) after that an connection attempt, read or
    write request is aborted. The value counts three times, as several
    retries are done from the driver before it gives up.
 
    The read timeout parameter is ignored on MySQL driver versions prior to
f5ccfeaa
    "5.1.12", "5.0.25" and "4.1.22". The write timeout parameter is ignored
    on versions prior to "5.1.12" and "5.0.25", the "4.1" release don't
b55c09b4
    support it at all.
 
    Default value is 2 (6 sec).
 
    Example 1.2. Set timeout_interval parameter
 ...
 modparam("db_mysql", "timeout_interval", 2)
 ...
 
 3.3. auto_reconnect (integer)
 
    Configure whether the module should automatically reconnect to MySQL
    server if the connection was lost.
 
    Default value is 1 (1 - on / 0 - off).
 
    Example 1.3. Set auto_reconnect parameter
 ...
 modparam("db_mysql", "auto_reconnect", 0)
 ...
 
61c706ef
 3.4. insert_delayed (integer)
 
    If set to 1, all INSERT SQL queries will be sent to MySQL server as
    INSERT DELAYED.
 
    Default value is 0 (1 - on / 0 - off).
 
    Example 1.4. Set insert_delayed parameter
 ...
 modparam("db_mysql", "insert_delayed", 1)
 ...

 4. Functions
b55c09b4
 
    No function exported to be used from configuration file.
 
 5. Installation
 
    Because it dependes on an external library, the mysql module is not
    compiled and installed by default. You can use one of these options.
      * - edit the "Makefile" and remove "db_mysql" from "excluded_modules"
        list. Then follow the standard procedure to install Kamailio: "make
        all; make install".
      * - from command line use: 'make all include_modules="db_mysql"; make
        install include_modules="db_mysql"'.
 
 6. Reading configuration from my.cnf
 
    In order to take into account specific mysql client options, a my.cnf
    config group can be passed using the db_url module parameter. This is
    done by setting [group] in front of or instead of the host part. The
    following examples are valid db_url definitions, which include a my.cnf
    group:
      * mysql://user:pass@[group]host:port/db
      * mysql://user:pass@[group]:port/db
      * mysql://user:pass@[group]/db
      * mysql://[group]/db
 
61c706ef
    Example 1.5. Set a my.cnf group in db_url parameter
b55c09b4
 ...
 modparam("usrloc", "db_url", "mysql://[kamailio]/kamailio)
 ...
 
61c706ef
    Example 1.6. Adding a kamailio group to my.cnf
b55c09b4
 ...
 [kamailio]
 socket = /path/to/mysql.sock
 user = kamailiouser
 password = kamailiopass
 default-character-set = utf8
 ...
 
    In addition to the given group, also the [client] section is read, in
    the order given in my.cnf. So if you for example specify a socket in
    both your specific group and the client group, then the value is taken
    from the last one.
 
61c706ef
    Example 1.7. Using [client] and specific group
b55c09b4
 ...
 [client]
 socket = /var/run/mysql/mysqld.sock
 
 [kamailio]
 socket = /path/to/mysqld.sock
 user = kamailiouser
 password = kamailiopass
 default-character-set = utf8
 ...
 
    In the example given above, the socket /path/to/mysqld.sock is used by
    Kamailio because both [kamailio] and [client] define this option, and
    the latter overwrites the first.
