Subject RE: [users@httpd] mod_auth_ldap and mod_frontpage
Date Fri, 25 Apr 2003 17:00:56 GMT
Thanks for the tip about rudedog.  I had tried the mod_auth_ldap module from successfully, but there was no FrontPage compatibility documented.
 I will give the rudedog version a shot.

I took a quick look at the site, and the documentation they have there at is essentially identical to
the documentation on the apache site at  My guess is that the
apache module is taken from rudedog.

I compared the documentation from the two sites on FrontPage and I noticed a
crucial omission in the docs on the apache site.  This short paragraph:

"To use FrontPage with auth_ldap, ensure that auth_ldap is compiled with the
-DAUTH_LDAP_FRONTPAGE_HACK. See the Makefile for more information."

This may explain why my mod_auth_ldap can't find the FrontPage stuff.  I will
re-compile and re-post once I've had a chance to test.

I know that the module auth_ldap (NOT mod_auth_ldap) has a front page
compatibility section, you might look at that. You could also try linking the
directory where it's looking to the actual files, and make sure you have
follow symlinks on in that directory.

Subject: [users@httpd] mod_auth_ldap and mod_frontpage

I'm using apache 2.0.45.  I compiled in mod_auth_ldap.  I have gotten it
work successfully with our Active Directory server.

I am also using the mod_frontpage module from rtr (Ready to Run
software) --
their beta version for apache 2.  It also works fine.

However, I cannot get mod_auth_ldap to work using LDAP with
 I've gone over the FrontPageHack stuff in the mod_auth_ldap
documentation a
number of times.  Still no luck.  Has anyone done this successfully?

One thing I noticed in the log file, running at debug level, was that
seems to be looking for .exe files -- like shtml.exe -- in the web's
area.  E.g.,

[Thu Apr 24 15:11:10 2003] [error] [client] File does
exist: /home/apache2/htdocs/_vti_bin/shtml.exe

These .exe's are not in the web and subwebs.  They are where frontpage
extensions were installed:


How to I tell mod_auth_ldap where to look for these?  Anything else I'm
