Open Directory, LDAP, and PHP/Joomla
Posted on 2013-01-29
I am attempting to setup our Joomla Intranet to connect to our Open Directory server (Mac Server 10.6.8) for authentication using LDAP.
I have opened the LDAP port and assigned it a static outside IP. I can connect to the Open Directory using this IP address from outside the network using the Directory Utility in Mac OS.
I cannot seem to find the proper information to get our webserver (external/CENTOS) to connect to the it. LDAP support is installed on the webserver.
What Base DN and Web DN should I use? Do I need a connect user and password? Do I use Search or not? I know I use LDAP V3. I tried the Base DN listed in the Server Manager, but that doesn't work. Using a PHP LDAP Debug tool, it just says it cannot connect to the server.
Any suggestions? Is there something else I have to set up?
