First off, I'm an OpenLDAP newbie. I'm test-running zimbra 3.1.4 on FC4. Zimbra itself is running nicely. Having said that I tried using the following link - http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=LDAP_Apache.
I was successful in applying having .htaccess authentication against my ZCS Directory
So, excited with the initial success, I tried my hand at another webapp (using php_ldap) that has the provision of authentication against an LDAP server.
This app is asking for the following fields:
1. LDAP Host (this is in my case meghnad.wbut.ac.in)
2. LDAP Port (default=389)
4. rootdn (for non anonymous binds)
5. Pass (for non-anonymous binds)
5. Connection filter
6. Login Field
7. Use TLS
in case of the .htaccess file (incidentally) I had simply specified the AuthLDAPURL as ldap://meghnad.wbut.ac.in/dc=wbut,dc=ac,dc=in
and that had worked.
I'n the other case, my trails have led me to errors like "invalid credentials" and "too many users found". What am I missing here???
