Solution with Active Directlry and web servers ?
Posted on 2014-03-18
I have a user who is trying to implement the following
We are looking to implement a whole new solution for students They have 7,200 students that they would enable them to create their own websites and storage objects on. They have looked into cPanel to accomplish this, the one issue they have run into is identity management. They would like to connect in via LDAP or AD or something so that the student may use their username and password to access the environment.
> We would be working through a partner of ours to accomplish this, so we can utilize 3rd party solutions to help. Any ideas on customers doing something similar OR a solution to their concept?
I was thinking to bring up an AD with couple of domain controllers and create the user objects. Then maybe through a cpanel or someother control panel software to give Students access to their web pages or web conf. files.
I was also looking at Joomla as an alternative of cpanel but i have never used the product.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
