Active Directory Authentication Integration

Allows WordPress to authenticate, authorize, create and update users through Active Directory

Important Notice

Since I don't currently have access to multiple AD servers, this plugin has only been tested on a single installation of WordPress with a single AD server. Therefore, it is entirely possible that there are major bugs.

At this time, I am seeking people to test the plugin, so please report any issues you encounter.


  • This plugin requires WordPress. It might work with versions older than 3.0, but it has not been tested with those.

  • This plugin also requires PHP5. Some attempt has been made to make it compatible with PHP4, but it has not been tested in that environment.

  • This plugin requires LDAP support to be compiled into PHP. If the ldap_connect() function is not available, this plugin will output an error message and will not do anything.

To Do

  • Add ability to validate against multiple AD servers (check one, then the other - rather than just load-balancing as the plugin currently does)
  • DONE as of 0.4a - Update admin interface to utilize native meta box interface rather than custom layout
  • DONE as of 0.3a - Separate the profile information from the role equivalent groups in the "auto update user" setting

Requires: 3.0 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.2.1
Last Updated: 5 years ago
Active Installs: 100+
