Onderwerp: [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 :)

Or maybe, to make everyone happy, to have a global cfg parameter for defining a default db_url. This will be used to populate the db_urls from the module.

So, the default value will be explicitly set in the opensips cfg -> no way to miss it, also easy to roll out a simple default cfg.
