Description Adam Huffman 2007-04-10 15:43:39 UTC
Description of problem:
Whereas simple LDAP authentication for Apache works on another (Ubuntu) server
running Apache 2.0.55, I can't get it to work on FC5 or FC6.  This doesn't seem
to be related to as
there's no evidence of a segfault and it occurs on both x86 and x86_64.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure LDAP authentication:

Alias /ldaptest /var/www/html/ldaptest

<Location /ldaptest>
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "My Security Realm"
  AuthBasicProvider ldap
  AuthLDAPURL "<URL that works on the other machine"
  Require valid-user

2. Go to website
Actual results:
Authentication dialogue box appears but it never succeeds

Expected results:
Authentication succeeds and the site is viewable in the browser

Additional info:

This is the error if I try to use a TLS connection:

[Tue Apr 10 16:26:46 2007] [warn] [client] [22099] auth_ldap
authenticate: user <deleted> authentication failed; URI /ldaptest [LDAP:
ldap_start_tls_s() failed][Connect error]

If I try without TLS, I get the following:

[Tue Apr 10 16:41:37 2007] [debug] mod_authnz_ldap.c(454): [client]
[32721] auth_ldap authenticate: accepting <username>
[Tue Apr 10 16:41:37 2007] [debug] mod_authnz_ldap.c(826): [client]
[32721] auth_ldap authorise: authorisation denied

even though the password is correct.
