Call Detail Reports

I am having troubles getting my CDR reporting to work on my asterisk box. I just installed it a week ago and have it up and running. I have nothing in my cdr.conf file and my cdr_mysql shows:

; Note - if the database server is hosted on the same machine as the
; asterisk server, you can achieve a local Unix socket connection by
; setting hostname=localhost
; port and sock are both optional parameters. If hostname is specified
; and is not “localhost”, then cdr_mysql will attempt to connect to the
; port specified or use the default port. If hostname is not specified
; or if hostname is “localhost”, then cdr_mysql will attempt to connect
; to the socket file specified by sock or otherwise use the default socket
; file.
password=******** (blocked out for security purposes)
user=******* (blocked out for security purposes)

the /usr/src/asterisk-addons shows:

[[email protected] asterisk-addons]# ls
app_addon_sql_mysql.c cdr_addon_mysql.c format_mp3 README
app_saycountpl.c configs Makefile res_config_mysql.c
asterisk-ooh323c doc mkdep res_sqlite3

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
