mod_auth_xradius for epel7?
Last modified: 2016-02-10 03:55:27 EST
Description of problem:
mod_auth_xradius is not available in the epel7 branch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install EPEL 7 on CentOS 7
2. Find that mod doesn't exist in repo.
Well ... "desired" results are to have the mod in EPEL 7.
I understand that since Apache on CentOS 7 is up to 2.4 (I think) there may be some additional code changes required to make mod_auth_xradius compatible.
It's not available because the package has been retired 2 years ago . It had security issues (guessable secrets), it is not compatible with Apache 2.4 and actually it has been abandoned almost 11 years ago  :)
Actually, it's better than trying to make it work on RHEL 7 you write your own module from scratch. It's already super-patched compared to the original code.
