Apache + Active Directory Authentication

Hey all,

I’m playing around with OpenSUSE 11.0 and I’m impressed at how well it works out of the box with Active Directory. I successfully joined my 11.0 box to the domain, and now users can login with their domain credentials as well as access shares on the domain.

I want to ACL web pages on Apache so that only valid users on my domain can access them. What’s the easiest method? Do I have to use mod_ldap? Thanks in advance, I appreciate it.

Yes a quick search with google shows that this seems to be the way to do it. There seem to be two ways, one longer via pam and pam_ldap and one directely via mod_ldap. Some of the howtos seem to be written for the old apache1 where mod_ldap wasn’t part of the core distribution so don’t use those. Have fun.
