Subject AW: [users@httpd] How to test my self-compiled Apache (overall and specifically LDAP)
Date Tue, 12 Apr 2016 07:16:59 GMT
Hi,

can you point me to possible scenarios where mod_ldap would be necessary? The docs say "websites
relying on backend connections to LDAP servers." I can't quite grasp it. Would it only be
useful if I don't use any LDAP libraries in my website code? Do you know of example websites
using this?

Oh, and did I understand it right that authnz-ldap is for basic HTTP authentication using
an LDAP server?

Regards,
Daniel P.

If you are only using LDAP in PHP scripts, then you don't need to
compile LDAP into httpd at all.
