[Plugin: Active Directory Authentication] does this work? (4 posts)

    I have the most recent version of WordPress running with this plugin installed. I have entered in all the required info, but it simply won't work. It doesn't seem to be connecting to AD despite having the right info. The site I have is internal only. I'm not sure if I have to make any tweaks to the plugin due to this or not.

    I was able to get this work, but there were a couple issues.

    1. You need to modify the ad-auth.php file where it displays the values of the settings on the admin page. Do a search for

    <? echo
    and replace them with
    <?php echo

    2. You must specify all options (well, except for Role Equivalent Groups), including the account suffix (e.g. @yourcompany.local). The base DN will be dc=yourcompany,dc=local for that domain.

    Once I did those things, it worked like a charm. Hopefully this will help you get it working.

    What I'd like to know is where the log-in page appears? Should we be trying to login via wp-admin?

    I've got a 2.9 WP installation. Somewhere between 2.7 and 2.9, WP did away with the private blog option...

    Thanks in advance!
