[pmwiki-users] AD Authentication...again.

Hi, everyone.


I'm brand new here and I've searched through the archives for
assistance.  I found the topic of AD authentication in the archives but
couldn't really get anything working right.

I feel bad asking more about it but I really want to get this working
for my company.  Basically, I'm running MS Server 2003 with PmWiki,
Apache, php, etc. installed and we have an Active Directory Server that
I want to use to authenticate employees at the company.  Until this
point, since the wiki is being used for documentation, I've had a
default password for both reading and editing that only IT knows here.
But I want to expand the wiki so that employees can use a general
section of it too.  The best way is definitely AD since we already have
this set up here.  I've tried the steps listed here:
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/AuthUser and I can login through our
Administrator AD account, but not my personal one (and I assume no other
accounts either).  So, it is indeed authenticating but only for one
account?  So weird.  

Here's the php code I'm using for this:



#Security Variables set login for edit & history page

    # to let anyone edit that has an ldap entry:

    $HandleAuth['diff'] = 'edit';

    $DefaultPasswords['read'] = 'id:*';

    $DefaultPasswords['edit'] = 'id:*';

    $Author = $AuthId;


$AuthLDAPBindDN = "caldwellfunding\\one of our usernames";


$AuthLDAPBindPassword = "the password for that username"; 


$AuthUser['ldap'] =





Again, this is based on the Pmwiki documentation.

Anyway, does anyone have a successful setup with a remote AD server that
can help out?  Thanks so much!
