comment How to change UNIX user password using passwd if user is stored in a MySQL database?
I was root when I executed getent shadow. It returned all the users specified in /etc/passwd, however, not the ones stored in the database. Are there any resources on how I properly configure pam to work with MySQL?

Thanks for trying. This was one of my first attempts, too. It doesn't work though (see updated question).

comment How to determine if I'm logged in via SSH?
Genius idea - Just out of curiosity, if I'm logged in from multiple machines (really a rare situation), how can determine which line of "w <username>" refers to my current shell? Can I somehow use the TTY field for that?
