WPMU LDAP 2.7 - Installation? (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I am trying to setup a blog site for corporate internal usage. I have installed and configured the following:

    Apache 2.2.8 w/ mod_SSL 2.2.8
    PHP 5.2.5
    MySQL DB
    Win32 platform
    WordPress Mu 2.7
    WPMU LDAP Plugin 2.7

    I have read all docs and every post I could find but can't seem to get it to work. I feel like I am missing something completely stupid. When I call ldap_auth.php I get many Fatal Errors: "Call to undefined function" and can't seem to get anywhere.

    Am I totally missing something? Do I need to include this somewhere or use this code to modify the existing home page or something?

    Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John

    The ldap plugin must be installed into the mu-plugins folder root - is that where you have it?

    Hello,

    Yes, I have it in the root of mu-plugins. I did configure it and enable it in the options of site-admin. Then called /wp-content/mu-plugins/ldap_auth.php

    I then get "Fatal Error: Call to undefined function add_filter() ... wpmu_ldap_admin.functions.php ... Line 449"

    I defined the add_filter function in this code and subsequently had similar problems with ldap_auth.php add_action() function. I kept defining the functions until I got a different error with a call to the cache module. At this point, I gave up just guessing I am doing something totally wrong.

    Best Regards,
    John

    UPDATE:

    I decided to start from scratch. (previous platform was based on xampp distribution)

    I now went with minimalist approach:
    Apache/2.2.11 (Win32)
    mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8i
    PHP/5.2.9-1 - with LDAP support
    MySQL DB
    Wordpress Mu 2.7
    WPMU LDAP rev.71 (most recent trunk)

    I am getting close now - no more function undefined code errors. (suspect it was related to php config)

    The error that I have now is when I try to login. "ERROR: Unknown error in LDAP Authentication"

    I think it is perhaps related to the Base and User DN defined in the connection parameters. (Additionally, the connection test fails)
    I have tried many different combinations of CN,OU,DC formatted paths and can't seem to get it to work.

    Could you provide some details on what I can check here or possibly how to troubleshoot this a bit further?

    Thanks,
    John

    Update:

    It is working. The problem was that in the LDAP the user I was trying to bind with had a CN of "Lastname, Firstname"

    I could not get this to bind at all. Using an LDAP browser that can show the full object DN is very helpful if you are having a problem with binding.

    I switched to a CN that was just a single name and it worked!
    Also, I had to define the full DN for the user.

    Thanks for this plugin - it is great.

    Best Regards,
    John
