2.1.8. SQL Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

To use Radiator's modules that utilise SQL for authenticating, recording, accounting, and other purposes, install the DBI Perl library, the DBD Perl library for your particular SQL database. Radiator does not include an SQL database server. Operating system vendors and Windows Perl distributions typically include DBI and DBD libraries for the common SQL databases as prepackaged modules.
To use SQL:
  1. Install and test your chosen SQL database server.
  2. Install and test DBI.
  3. Install and test the DBD Perl module for the installed database server
On Windows with ActivePerl and Strawberry Perl, you can use the PPM command to install the appropriate DBD support for your SQL server.
