Allows WordPress to externalize user authentication and account creation to a Shibboleth Service Provider.
First and foremost, you must have the Shibboleth Service Provider properly installed and working. If you don't have Shibboleth working yet, I assure you that you won't get this plugin to work. This plugin expects Shibboleth to be configured to use "lazy sessions", so ensure that you have Shibboleth configured with requireSession set to "false". Upon activation, the plugin will attempt to set the appropriate directives in WordPress's .htaccess file. If it is unable to do so, you can add this manually:
AuthType Shibboleth Require Shibboleth
shibboleth folder to your WordPress plugins folder (probably
), and activate it through the WordPress admin panel. Configure it from the Shibboleth settings page.
Shibboleth works equally well with WordPress MU using either vhosts or folders
for blogs. Upload the
shibboleth folder to your
/wp-content/mu-plugins). Move the file
shibboleth folder up one directory so that it is in
shibboleth folder. No need to activate it, just configure it
from the Shibboleth settings page, found under "Site Admin".
