Subject [users@httpd] Apache LDAP authentication and non anonymous binding?
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2008 14:13:42 GMT

I'm just trying to configure LDAP authentication for apache, and it
looks like my scenario is not supported (or I can't find a word about
I've read the docs on
Most of LDAP servers accept anonymous binding for the authentication
phase. Mine does not.
So, there are two options:
AuthLDAPBindDN  	An optional DN to bind with during the search phase.
AuthLDAPBindPassword 	An optional password to bind with during the search phase.

But the problem is that I need to bind to LDAP for this phase with the
credentials that are going to be checked. because:
1. my LDAP does not allow anonymous binding
2. i don't have any guest user that I want to connect with
3. obviously I don't want to use one real fixed user for all search
authentication lookups.

So, Is it possible? The question is, is there a way of using the
actual login/password credentials for the binding phase and if bind
succeeds ==> authentication true and go to authorization phase?
