MySQL integration with Active Directory...
Posted on 2004-11-19
Let me present this as a need:
We want to do the following:
Provide access to various parts of a website via the groups defined in our Active Directory -
So, I'm looking for ways to integrate that- I don't know if there's something like a PHP script that could make the calls each time someone accesses a page (to find out what group the username belongs to)
or if I'm looking to tie MySQL into Active Directory and build a dynamic table (or update a table every day to reflect user changes), or what..
Seems like many approaches would work-
1. Do this entirely in PHP on the website (which is running IIS btw)
2. Use MySQL somehow
3. I know LDAP's out there- but I'm not sure if our AD has the connectors, and I'd probably run into resistance in modifying our AD to do that-
