Subject [users@httpd] ldaps authentication
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2006 21:11:54 GMT
Greetings List,

I have seen this question posted several times, but have not seen a
resolution.  If it is in the archives, I apologize for not seeing it

I have ldap authentication working using mod_auth_ldap, but I want to
enable ldaps to avoid transmitting passwords in clear text.  This is the
configuration so far:

<Directory "/home/httpd/ldap_test">
   AuthType basic
   AuthName "ldap test"
   AuthLDAPBindDN cn=nobody,ou=Users-IT,dc=domain,dc=com
   AuthLDAPBindPassword password
   AuthLDAPGroupAttribute member
   require group cn=ldap_test_group,ou=Users-IT,dc=domain,dc=com

however, to enable ldaps, I add these lines (outside the <Directory>, of

LDAPTrustedCA /etc/httpd/conf/cacerts/dc1.cer

and then change ldap to ldaps in the AuthLDAPUrl line

and it stops working.

I have used this cert successfully in pam_ldap and ldapsearch.  

Any suggestions for what I could be doing wrong?  

The details:


Thanks for any suggestions,
