Re: openldap - force simple auth?

When using ldapadd from the command line, I can force it to use the rootpw entry in the slapd.conf by using the -x switch.

No, the "-x" tells the system to use "simple" authentication. By default, the system attempts to connect via SASL.

I'd like to manage my directory using phpldapadmin (http://phpldapadmin.sf.net), but I'm unable to authenticate because of the dreaded error:

SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Internal (implementation specific) error (80)
        additional info: SASL(-13): user not found: no secret in database

I don't feel the need to run SASL just for the tiny little directory I'll be running - an address book for my home LAN that I share with my wife. Any way to force the slapd to use simple auth by default?

It's not slapd that's the cause, it's the LDAP client. You have to change the PHP code to use "ldap_simple_bind()" rather than "ldap_sasl_bind()". Or convince the authors to make it a configuration option. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - 500: Internal Fortune Cookie Error - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
