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 for the MySQL database. In some
       Linux distributions named "libmysqlclient-dev".

3. Parameters

   3.1. ping_interval (integer)
   3.2. server_timezone (integer)
   3.3. timeout_interval (integer)
   3.4. auto_reconnect (integer)
   3.5. insert_delayed (integer)
   3.6. update_affected_found (integer)
   3.7. opt_ssl_mode (integer)

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. server_timezone (integer)

   Control if kamailio converts a time to string using the local timezone
   or if MySQL will convert it using FROM_UNIXTIME. This option is useful
   if kamailio and the database are configured for different timezones.

   Default value is 0 (use local conversion)

   Example 1.2. Set server_timezone parameter
...
modparam("db_mysql", "server_timezone", 1)
...

3.3. 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
   “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
   support it at all.

   Default value is 2 (6 sec).

   Example 1.3. Set timeout_interval parameter
...
modparam("db_mysql", "timeout_interval", 2)
...

3.4. 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 1.4. Set auto_reconnect parameter
...
modparam("db_mysql", "auto_reconnect", 0)
...

3.5. 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 1.5. Set insert_delayed parameter
...
modparam("db_mysql", "insert_delayed", 1)
...

3.6. update_affected_found (integer)

   If set to 1, all UPDATE SQL queries will return the number of matched
   rows instead of the number of "updated" rows.

   Default value is 0 (1 - on / 0 - off).

   Example 1.6. Set update_affected_found parameter
...
modparam("db_mysql", "update_affected_found", 1)
...

3.7. opt_ssl_mode (integer)

   Control how the connection to MySQL server is done in regards to
   SSL/TLS. If set to 1, SSL/TLS mode is disabled.

   The 'include/mysql.h' starting with MySQL 5.7.11 defines the values for
   this option as enum: 'mysql_ssl_mode { SSL_MODE_DISABLED=1,
   SSL_MODE_PREFERRED, SSL_MODE_REQUIRED, SSL_MODE_VERIFY_CA,
   SSL_MODE_VERIFY_IDENTITY}'.

   Note: if the value of this parameter is 1, it enforces
   SSL_MODE_DISABLED, any other value is passed to the mysql_options(),
   not checking if it is defined.

   Note: this option is supported only by libmysqlclient, not by
   libmariadbclient.

   Default value is 0 (0 - off).

   Example 1.7. Set opt_ssl_mode parameter
...
modparam("db_mysql", "opt_ssl_mode", 1)
...

4. Functions

   No function exported to be used from configuration file.

5. Installation

   Because it depends 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

   Example 1.8. Set a my.cnf group in db_url parameter
...
modparam("usrloc", "db_url", "mysql://[kamailio]/kamailio)
...

   Example 1.9. Adding a kamailio group to my.cnf
...
[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.

   Example 1.10. Using [client] and specific group
...
[client]
socket = /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.
