mod_authn_mysql != mod_auth_mysql. See below.

mod_authn_mysql.c, to my knowledge, is not part of mod_auth_mysql so if
you ask me the error doesn't come from mod_auth_mysql.

I'm not sure and I didn't look it up, but the error above may be due to
the fact that digest authtype isn't supported by mod_authn_mysql that
you seem to be using. See below.

AuthnMySQLServerConfig is not a mod_auth_mysql directive.

Again, mod_authn_mysql != mod_auth_mysql.
               ^                 ^

I have something like this:

<Directory "<dirname>">
  AuthName "Authentication required."
  AuthType Basic
  AuthMySQLHost <db_host>
  AuthMySQLDB <db_name>
  AuthMySQLUser <db_user>
  AuthMySQLPassword <db_pass>
  AuthMySQLAuthoritative On
  AuthMySQLPwEncryption <enc_type>
  AuthMySQLUserTable <users_table>
  AuthMySQLGroupTable <groups_table>
  AuthMySQLNameField <field_name_user>
  AuthMySQLPasswordField <field_name_pass>
  AuthMySQLGroupField <field_name_group>
  AuthMySQLEnable On
  Require group admin

Well, install package mod_auth_mysql-3.0.0 if available for your distro,
configure it with mod_auth_mysql directives and try with "AuthType
Basic". The above config works for me so.
