humm, the silence is deafening . . .

for what it's worth, i have nade the following edit to .../kernel/user.php:

function &loginUser($uname, $pwd, $md5 = false) {
if (!$md5) {
$pwd = md5($pwd);
}
$criteria = new CriteriaCompo(new Criteria('loginname', $uname));
// $criteria->add(new Criteria('pass', $pwd)); <-- commented out this line

it appears to be working for me.
ymmv

ldap auth: uid / uname / employee_number - not matching up

i have been searching trying to find some hints/ideas/solutions - but here i am again . . .

i am trying to authenticate using ldap -
i am getting rather confused as to what is expected for these values:
- uid APPEARS mean different things to XOOPS and our LDAP
XOOPS appears to want a numeric value for uid
our LDAP uid is a string - more appropriate to the XOOPS uname

- our LDAP
uid - text - user login name
employee_number - numeric - looks like what XOOPS wants for uid

- Xoops
uname - text - user login name

first, i am certain of what our LDAP looks like, but please confirm that my understanding of what XOOPS is supposed to like is correct.

second, what is the appropriate configuration for setting this up?

third, it appears (after fiddling with ldap_uid_asdn) that even when ldap authenticates correctly, XOOPS still tries to match the password in the MySQL db table - which i CANNOT do (no passwords to be stored locally.

does this make sense?

thanks,
d-

i am having the same issue -
i ssh'ed to the new server,
i am using mysqlcc (downloadable from mysql.com)
and can connect to the MySQL server from the webserver.
i turned on debugging, but still no luck.

figured it out.

buried in the MySQL server log, the version incompatibility - the apache-php-mysql client was 3.23 and the mysql-server was 4.x and was begin rejected.

this link helped get it going.

and when a site IS actively using many modules?
this really is a valid need.

rss feed of module changes?
include a clickable link to incorporate the changes?

I am trying to create a multiple-question poll / survey.
The current module does not appear to support this,
and I haven't found anything that does.
Seems surprising, . . . or I am searching up the wrong engine ;~)

I could see how adding a field/column to the data structure - Sequence - could bind multiple poll questions together and provide presentation order.

Templates could be adjusted to sort/loop around the poll/sequence values.

Thanks for your insight - and I agree.
I am curremtly working in several modes,
development in one area,
production in another.

In development, I am very interested in what features/etc are flowing in fromthe community.

In production, well, you've already described it.

I am thinking of running the dev on another port (and in another sql database) so users can play and experiment without interefering with the REAL work.

Is anyone else wondering how to keep installed modules updated - somewhat automatically?
Xoops makes it easy enough to go into the Admin Menu, Modules and update the modules individually.
This gets rather tedious, and creates a maintenance issue.

And not that blindly applying all updates is a great idea either.

I haven't figured out a solution for myself yet, but am asking around how other Xoop'ers keep their sites sparkly brite!

I would think each module could have some diff summarizing the changes, and these could be recorded when the updates are applied.

Also, an "Update All Modules" could be handy (or very dangerous)

Any thoughts?

How cools is that?!
I can screw up and still recover without a re-install,
or a graduate course in stochastics!

.../user.php let me log in.
.../admin.php let me correct what is displayed.

Thanks!

First off, . . . XOOPS is Fantastic!!!!

Second, I mistakenly turned off the ability to login,
and now I cannot find a way to modify the site.
I WANTED to "see" what the sight would look like to an anonymous user and did not want the login block there.

Not real bright, but that's after the fact ;~)

I have phpMyAdmin running, and the site is local if I need to hand-edit code to get this back again.

Thanks.

And . . . XOOPS is Fantastic!
