It sure would be nice if we could use MySQL as the
database backend for the 2.x series.

    MySQL support would be easy to add, I have set the codebase
    up to support multiple databases, but I don't use the MySQL
    product, so this will be comming later rather than sooner
    unless someone else steps to the plate on it.

    I'm in the final stages of completing/testing a version of the
    code (based on 2.0.1) that works with a MySQL backend (ver
    3.23 or higher).

    It works but needs tidying up, especially around the area of
    parsing the bandwidthd.conf file. It looks to me like some of
    this code is auto-generated so I'd appreciate any advice on
    what I should do next. At the moment I've manually hacked
    bandwidthd.c, h to override the ifdef statements around
    PostgresSql and include the mysql libraries.

    As soon as I've completed testing and tidied it up a bit then of
    course you are welcome to the code.
