Simple LDAP Login
Other shortnames (4 posts)

    I'm using the Simple LDAP Login, and it's working great. I have one question though - is there any way for the user to log in with shortnames other than the primary one? Some of our users have more than one shortname (because they don't like their primary, auto-generated one), and it would be great if they could choose to log in with their other shortname instead.

    I get that this would probably create a new user in WordPress, but that's not a problem for me.

    I'm using Apple's Mac OS X Server as the LDAP server.

    I'm afraid I don't have an answer to your question, but rather I'm trying to get this plugin to work with our Mac OS X server, and wondering how you did it. I'm not sure what to put in each of the settings, especially Account Suffix.

    I'm completely new to server administration, so the LDAP configuration should all be default.

    If your LDAP server has the address ldap.server.com, then these settings should work:

    - Check "OpenLDAP" as server type.
    - Account suffix: "@ldap.server.com"
    - LDAP login attribute: "uid"
    - Base DN: "CN=users,DC=ldap,DC=server,DC=com"
    - Domain controller: "ldap.server.com"

    If this doesn't work, then there might be something wrong with your server settings.

    Thanks! The CN=users prefix was what I was missing.

    Two things don't seem to work: restricting LDAP users to those in a specific group just causes them all to fail, and some longer or more complicated passwords seem to fail in WordPress even though they work in other scenarios.
