PHP and NTLM in Apache

I'm trying to get NTLM to work on the following cofiguration:

Windows 2000
Apache 2
php-4.3.1

I have installed the module "mod_auth_sspi" for apache, and the authentication seems to work fine, becuase
when I try to access the site using netscape I get asked for my NT credentials.
But I am having problems exctracting the username in my PHP code, I've tried the following code:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
echo "Your username is: ".$SERVER["AUTH_USER"];
echo "<br>";
echo "The authentication type is: ".$_SERVER["AUTH_TYPE"];
echo "The digest of your password is: ".$_SERVER["HTTP_AUTHORIZATION"];
echo "<br>";
echo "The username of the server user is: ".$_SERVER["LOGON_USER"];
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But I get no results.

Anyone know what might be wrong?

put this in your page somewhere:


<pre>
<?php print_r($GLOBALS); ?>
</pre>

Pay particular attention to the $_SERVER section of the array.

(Also, <?php phpinfo(); ?> might be a good idea (must do it separately I think)).

BTW, the first line in your code says "$SERVER", which of course should be "$_SERVER".  That isn't what's causing your problem, but you may want to double-check that you don't have similar errors.  Putting "error_reporting(E_ALL);" at the top of your script is always a good idea for debugging purposes (make sure to remove it once the website goes live). This may help you to find some of those mis-typed variables.

Some more code might be nice.  But then again, there might not be anything wrong with your code at all. It might be an installation/configuration problem.

Well as you can see, the $_SERVER["AUTH_TYPE"] and other variables you were using do not exist as far as the server is concerned.  Seems like a configuration problem to me, possibly with NTLM.

I'm not sure what I did wrong.

The HTTP Authentication hooks in PHP are only available when it is running as an Apache module, as result it was not working for me.
