LDAP Authentication

Post by MaxPayne3 » Fri Feb 23, 2018 11:01 am

Hello all,
Note that i need to activate the LDAP Authentication mode.
Consequently when configuring same i'm having the below message:
Information
LDAP extension not available.

My server is a Windows Server 2012 R2.

Can you provide me the exact guidelines to install LDAP extension for PHP?
i have seen several articles but none is working.

Urgent.

Hello mick,
I have already gone through the 'Client Authentication' sections of the manual.
My issue is installing/enabling the LDAP extension for PHP Version 5.6.31 on a Windows Server 2012.

Please please help.

Payne.

Server configuration is beyond the scope of this board - you would be better off asking your question on a forum dedicated to this type of configuration.

Hello all,
I have seen over the net about how to enable the LDAP extension for php. Needed to install PHPManager on the server.
I managed to install same on my server but i'm unable to open or access same.

Anyone knows how to use/open PHP Manager to enable ldap extension?

Your prompt response will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello all,
I managed to access the phpManager which is via IIS Console and successfully enable the LDAP Extension.

Consequently while configuring the LDAP on the phpBB (ACP > Authentication), i'm having the following error:
Information: Could not find a login identity for admforum., where admforum is the admin account for the forum.

Kindly advise.

You should Google search the error message “information: could not find a login identity for adm forum” there are several hits to do with phpBB, LDAP and IIS.

Hello Mick,
Thanks, I managed to find out the exact settings for the LDAP authentication and the setting has been saved without any error.

Consequently:
> The aim to use LDAP, is to automatically register users upon they access the forum URL.
That is once they open the url they are automatically registered (using their LDAP details - username, email) and they receive a mail etc.

But do we have any thing other settings to configure? because i have opened the URL (ldap authentication already saved) and it's not login automatically to the forum.

Awaiting your prompt response.
