secret = ${jrs_config.secret0}

Appears correct

secret = "the value of jrs_config.secret0"

Anyway the error I get with SQL

authorize_check_query = "SELECT id, UserName, Attribute, Value, op FROM 
${authcheck_table} WHERE UserName = '%{SQL-User-Name}'

WARNING: Unknown module "authcheck_table" in string expansion 
"%{authcheck_table} .

But this only happens when the query is actually executed ...

And it shouldn't really ...
The configuration variables should be substituted when the config file 
is being parsed ... not when the query is being executed..

So that should be, all run time configuration variable substitutions are 
broken and the SQL module happens to be the only one that seems to do 
them ?
