NAME

Konstrukt::Plugin::guestbook::DBI - Konstrukt guestbook. Backend Driver for the Perl-DBI.

SYNOPSIS

        #TODO

DESCRIPTION

Konstrukt guestbook DBI backend driver.

CONFIGURATION

Note that you have to create the table guest. You may turn on the install setting (see "CONFIGURATION" in Konstrukt::Handler) or use the KonstruktBackendInitialization.pl script to accomplish this task.

You have to define those settings to use this backend:

        #backend
        guestbook/backend/DBI/source       dbi:mysql:database:host
        guestbook/backend/DBI/user         user
        guestbook/backend/DBI/pass         pass

If no database settings are set the defaults from "CONFIGURATION" in Konstrukt::DBI will be used.
