Subject RE: [users@httpd] Auth aliases problem
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2013 07:18:22 GMT
I am able to authenticate to LDAP with no problem.
I am not able to set aliases properly.
LDAP without setting aliases works just on the go, but I have to authenticate to second domain
and that is what I wanted to achieve with aliases.
But apache doesn't recognize aliases set by me.
I'm getting error "Unknown auth provider" for any alias I've set.
I've checked for mistyping errors over 10 times already, and tried even with simply alias
"aaa" to avoid mistyping error.

I'm using apache in version 2.2.16-6+squeeze11 from debian repository.

You can also try authenticating to PAM, and then in

/etc/pam.d/apache2 (or httpd, I'll have to check)

You specify

Auth                      sufficient   
Account               sufficient   

Pam_ldap is part of  the nss_ldap package.

This tells PAM to authenticate with LDAP.

On your VirtualHost directive, you'll also need to add:

<Directory /var/www/myrestrictedarea>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted area for My Server"
AuthPAM_Enabled On
Require group mygroup

This should allow you to authenticate to LDAP.

Subject: [users@httpd] Auth aliases problem

I'd like to ask again about my problem: I want to make aliases for ldap authorization with
mod_authn_alias, I have set everything up correctly, according to the documentation, enabled
required module, set "AuthBasicProvider aaa" in my configuration, and I receive error: "Unknown
Authn provider: aaa" - there is no single line in error.log, there is no information I can
google, as all forward to: "Unknown Authn provider: ldap" and this is not the problem I experience
- there is certainly other basis of the problem.
