Subject [users@httpd] mod_auth_ldap, frontpagehack, and AuthUserFile question:
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2003 21:21:58 GMT
Hello everyone,

I need a little help integrating rtr's frontpage module and 
mod_auth_ldap.  The frontpage authentication works just fine using users 
and groups from the automatically setup local auth files, but when I 
follow the instructions on the mod_auth_ldap documentation page to use 
the frontpage hack, no ldap authentication is attempted.

After munging around in the .htaccess files I found that ldap 
authentication will be attempted ONLY if I remove the AuthUserFile 
directive.  However, as expected, ANY ldap user is then allowed access, 
whether or not they have been added as an author to the frontpage web.

I'm using RHL8.0 with Apache 2.0.47 built against openldap-2.0.27-2.8.0. 
  I'm also using nss_ldap for system level authentication and 
information lookups.

Here is what my .htaccess file looks like:

# -FrontPage-

IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

<Limit GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
require valid-user
order deny,allow
deny from all
AuthType Basic
AuthName webDevelopment
AuthLDAPAuthoritative off
AuthLDAPFrontPageHack on
AuthUserFile /web/internal/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
AuthGroupFile /web/internal/_vti_pvt/service.grp


Thanks in advance!
