RE: Help with apache and ldap authentication

I found I always had to turn AuthzLDAPAuthoritative Off for it to work
for me but our setup was slightly different. I use:

# turn on LDAP authentication and authorization module
AuthzLDAPEngine on

# define ldap server
AuthzLDAPServer server.com.au

# set the search base
AuthzLDAPUserBase dc=server,dc=com,dc=au

# define the search filter (ie what attribute to search in)
AuthzLDAPUserKey uid

# how to search through the name space
AuthzLDAPUserScope subtree

# ensure the authorization header is not re-written
AuthzLDAPSetAuthorization off

# we use ldap authentication and mod_access authorization
# to determine access so we need to ensure the process
# doesn't finish with mod_authz_ldap
AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off

AuthType basic
AuthName "Something"
require user someuser
