Support » Plugin: NinjaFirewall (WP Edition) - Advanced Security » Account creation via LDAP fails

  • Resolved ExpertLink


    Hi there
    I have installed the plugin ‘LDAP/Active Directory Login for Intranet sites’ to connect my WordPress site to my Active Directory server.
    When a new (WordPress) user logs in the user will be created in WordPress after successfully verification against the AD server.
    But this is being blocked with this message: ‘NinjaFirewall: [NinjaFirewall] Blocked privilege escalation attempt.’

    What setting I have to modify in order to allow the user creation via AD?

    Thanks, Frank

    Is that account an admin user? This protection is supposed to block only admin accounts not created by the admin user.

    You can disable it by adding the following line in your wp-config.php script:

    define('NFW_DISABLE_PRVESC2', true);

    yes, it is an admin user.
    Thanks for quick responds. I added this like to my wp-config.php

    Thank you and best regards,
