Subject Re: Using Apache ds in a web application - user names, passwords
Date Tue, 22 May 2007 08:26:13 GMT
Hi Ceren,

in the code you pasted at the end of you rmail, you are using the
administrator to connect to the server. Even if this is perfectly legal, I
would not recommand to allow users to do so, as they will gain full control
over the server, and then delete some vital information.

The best solution would be to create a place in the DIT where you store the
users, with their password, and ask them to authenticate with those

I will recommend you read the following page :

where this authentication is described.

I hope this is enough for your need, otherwise, please feel free to post a
new mail for more accurate informations.

Thanks for using Apache Directory Server !
