How do I set up LDAP Authetication on phpBB 3.0.5?
Posted on 2009-07-10
We just recently installed a new phpBB forum system to allow for interoffice communication.
Although I do consider myself an IT professional, I'm a little embarrassed to say that I have had NO experience working with LDAP. I do have AD experience, but only from within the AD server itself using the built-in MS "Active Directory Users and Computers" program.
Any ways, for those of you who are not familiar with phpBB, here is the information it wants from me.
1) LDAP server name
2) LDAP server port
3) LDAP base dn
4) LDAP uid
5) LDAP user filter
6) LDAP e-mail attribute
7) LDAP user dn
8) LDAP password
The name of our network is HEARUSA. Our AD is located on the domain controller, which is 10.1.0.10 (or HEARUSADC3). The user ID that is going to control this is "2701".
My question is simple. What do I need to give phpBB to let it authenticate through our AD?
Let me know what else I can give to get a solution. Thank you!
