[OpenSIPS-Users] [RFC] Default value of db_url in OpenSIPS

Hi all,

Following some discussions on the value of db_url, we end up with the 
idea of chancing the way of definition the db_url in opensips.

The problem with the current approach (having builtin - hidden- default 
values) is confusing as, if you do no explicitly set a db_url, the 
modules will try do connect to the default db_url, without you even 
knowing that.

So the idea is to remove the builtin default value and to have a new 
global parameter in opensips cfg to define the default value for db_urls.
This will allow:
     - to have single default db_url for simple default scripts (as we 
have now)
     - to see (no mote hidden) the default value for db_url in your cfg
     - to change the default db_url without re-compilling
     - still be able to individually change the db_urls for each module...

Already there are three +votes for this, but I would like to see other 
opinions on that....pro or against :)
