We have successfully configured and tested our SLES 10 server to authenticate LDAP.  Our problem lies in the Apache code on one our authenticating servers. We have the following in our httpd :


<Directory /var/www/html/Authent>
 AuthType Basic
 AuthName "Company Internal Server"
 AuthBasicProvider ldap
 AuthzLDAPAuthoritative On
 AuthLDAPURL ldaps://mail.company.com:636/ou=users,o=company?uid SSL
 AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=ldapproxy,o=company"
 require valid-user
</Directory>
 
The error we are receiving is :

[Mon Jun 09 15:41:54 2008] [warn] [client 66.105.XXX.XXX] [23743] auth_ldap authenticate: user testuser authentication failed; URI /Authent/ca_resume_test.php [LD
AP: ldap_simple_bind_s() failed][Can't contact LDAP server]

We believe the error may be related to a certificate issue but are unaware ofhow to determine this.

Have you tested without using SSL?  I would suggest that you try not using SSL.  Once you have that working then try SSL.

We have successfully completed the tests without SSL. What would the next step be in the SSL process. Do we transfer certificate? Does the code look correct?

The code for SSL and non-SSL will be the same, except for the ldaps part.

Are you using a cert that is signed by a public CA, your own CA, or a self-signed cert?

If using a self-signed cert, then you need to import the public key of the server onto the client.
