Xoops LDAP Authentication

I understand that in the later versions of XOOPS LDAP authentication is built into the core. Will someone point me to some / any documentation on exactly what is needed to set up XOOPS with LDAP? I've searched the forums but have not found anything (wrong search terms???).

I'll look through the source if needed, but hope to avoid that route if possible.

Thanks!
Chad

Re: Xoops LDAP Authentication

haven't tried it yet, but you have all the options in the admin panel->prefferences->authentication options.
so if you have a ldap then I guess you just need to configure it.

sorry if I am telling you something you already know.

Re: Xoops LDAP Authentication

I see the configuration options and most of them make sense. I need to determine what DC, OU, to enter etc... What if we have two or three (or more) instances of XOOPS running (one for each department)? Will they use the same groups? Can we configure the group names for different implementations of Xoops?

I hope to find some documentation on how everything is supposed to be set up.

Thanks for the response.
