    hi everyone!
    first of all i would like to thanks you guys out there doing the good work!
    i have 3 points i want to know about:

    1) session timeout
    2) user session data
    3) logging

    1- is it possible to set a timeout after inactive connections  (not from the mysql db engin but from the apache mod_auth_mysql side )
    2- is there any work around out there to insert users data into the database such as client IP and Date
    3- is there any other point where i can collect user data which is provided by the Client ?

    thanks you and greetings

      These are some good questions.  Some answers:

      1. No.  We aren't called except for authentication/authorization.  There would be no way we could get control to handle a possible timeout situation. 

      However, this shouldn't be a problem.  When Apache detects a session timeout, it goes through a cleanup procedure.  Part of that procedure should be to call us to close the connection.

      2. No, we don't plan to do any logging in this module.  Howevr, this information should be available to you via the Apache logs.

      3. Not here.  Again, much of this information is in the Apache logs.  It depends on what you want.
