Is it planned to support LDAP for authorization?

Not unless someone contracts this and then we decide it to be an important enough featgure to include in the distribution tree.

As it stands now there are no plans to integrate LDAP support into the forum.

Hello!

ad 1.) What does that mean? I would be VERY interested in LDAP-support, what can be done that this happens?

Sorry if i miss something obvious, i just recently found FUDforum as i was searching for a replacement for phpBB 2.0.3, also because it doesn`t support LDAP!

ad 2.) That would be too bad, i`m switching my community to a single sign-on system and this feature would be a great argument to convert to FUDforum!

Thanks for an answer in advance,

Yours,

Steve

1) If someone sponsors the development of FUDforum LDAP integration.

As is I do not see how LDAP integration will enchance FUDforum, the data is already stored in convient database.

Hello!

ad 1.) How is this done? Is there a URL describing how to start this?

ad 2.) Well, i have a community which uses a central server,a forum,a gallery, a CMS.......and i want to unify the logon-process.


Thanks,

The login/auth process of FUDforum is fairly modular so you can replace it with your own auth. The problem is account syncronization, for example what happens when people register on the forum, do they have accounts created inside LDAP as well and so on...
The auth code can be found users users.inc.t & users_reg.inc.t

Hello!

I`m thinking about a single page where the user can create his account in the LDAP and if he comes to the forumpage can log in with the LDAP-account. If he presses the "register"-button in the forum he is sent to the aforementioned page.

How is commissioning the LDAP-Support done, maybe my community finds this effort worth it.

Send me as detailed of a spec as your can of what you want to be done via email (ilia(at)prohost(dot)org), I'll clarify any ambigious points or suggest features/additions and/or possible alternatives. Once we agree on the final spec I'll give you a quote.

hmm, as usual, new ideas but nothing behind it lol.

i've never heard of a LDAP<->website syndication. is that saver than php+mysql?
standardized authentication would be a great benefit, but the syndication of CMS + forum isn't that hard...

Hallo!

ad 1.) What do you mean by that? We are in the middle of registering our association ("Verein") so we will look at that when we have the time for it...or did i understand you wrong? Smile

ad 2.) I agree with the authentication, but regarding syndication: the CMS we are using doesn`t support database-prefixes, so it`s a little harder. I hope i understood right what you meant though...

hey, you're alive Smile
no, you got me right, it seemed as if your presence here faded out in the last weeks of december 2002 Wink

2. hmm, no prefixes? no big prob, just hack a little more Smile
but actually, i hate hacking existing solutions as phpBB, gallery, ... as they come out with new version all few months and you're adviced to upgrade. but if you have installed lots of mods, hacked a syndicaition or some own styles, you gotta to do all over again after upgrading to the new version Sad

a little offtopic, i know...

Hello!

ad 1.) Yeah, alive and kicking, but tied up with the "Verein" and installing our new server.

ad 2.) Hehehehe, there are 48 hours days now? Wink

ad 3.) I`m exactly in this situation, which is why i'm looking for a upgradefriendly substitute of phpbb --> here, and with LDAP it would have all i need when our new server is up and running. But until this is done (the server) i`ll have to put this here a little down my TODO list Smile


Thanks,

Ciao,

Steve

I have implemented it, but it's specific to our site. It would take a bit of work to generalize it enough for everyone to use.

Ilia, if you're interested in the PHP code, let me know in a private email.

[Edit]: I should also mention that adding LDAP auth makes it very difficult to have user accounts that are created within FUD itself. It's much easier to force all accounts to be validated using the LDAP directory and disable new account creation in FUD.

If you want feel free to share your implementation on the hacks forum. I can't say that this is something I'd be looking to integrate into the base install.

Hi,

An LDAP plugin was committed to CVS. To use it, install from CVS or wait for the final FUDforum 2.8.1 release.

Best regards.

Frank
