Support » Plugin: Next Active Directory Integration » Sync from AD to WordPress not working when using powershell

  • Hi there,

    I have a problem with your plugin after WordPress’s update to the newest version (5.3). My page is based on Apache 2.4 and Windows Server, where I have created task schedules for synchronization (AD to WP). Everythings worked fine ok but after update, the sync has been stopped. On server’s side it’s ok – task runs and didn’t reports any errors.

    While I click on the “Sync to WordPress” option in admin menu, the sync starts and ends correct…

    Here is the command (it’s provided by you), but maybe there is some mistake…
    powershell -Command "Invoke-WebRequest -Uri -Method POST -Body @{'next_ad_int-task'='sync-to-wordpress';'auth-code'='auth_code'}"

    Please for help because this task schedule was really great.

    1. Can you please post a list of all plug-ins you are using?
    2. Which error do you receive in Apache’s/nginx’/php-fpm’s error log when executing Sync to WordPress?

    2. I didn’t receive any error…
    The sync works correct while I have clicked on “Sync to WordPress” button in admin menu, but it’s not enough for me – I have to have active and correct powershell’s script to set task schedule on my server… 🙁

    Maybe server restart is needed?


    1. Have you already tried deactivating all plugins and only test Next Active Directory Integration: Sync to WordPress?
    2. Please check your Apache Error Log Files so that we exactly know what happened

    No it’s not necessary to restart your server

    Hi there,

    I’ve updated my PHP version to 7.4 and now I’m getting this…

    Username for the sync user does not contain a correct suffix. If the connection to the ad fails, this could be the cause. Please make sure you have added all UPN suffixes to the configuration tab User -> Account suffix.

    Nothing was changed in my configuration…

    Of course I have turned on all required php’s modules.

    I forgot to put Apache’s logs…

    This error occurs while I’m trying to get “Sync to WordPress” and “Test authentication” option.

    Please help and tell me – is your plugin compatible with PHP 7.4? If no, when do you think, should be compatible?

    Hello once again!

    As I guess something’s changed in PHP 7.4 because now I’m using PHP 7.1.10 and sync has been finished correctly.

    If you have any questions please let me know 🙂

    Ohh I’m really sorry for the spam I’ve do here but I have new info:

    The problem with scheduled sync was fixed by me – there was a mistake in task configuration, but it’s really weird because I didn’t change anything with it since ~2017… Ohh, nevermind.

    But the problem with compatibility with PHP 7.4 is still open and hope you will be able to help 🙂

    @khaotic please check if you have a version mismatch between your PHP binary and modules ( The error “Could not create session handle: Local error…” is not anything coming from the plug-in itself but from your php_ldap module
