I'm not planning to go private with this one myself. So far I've set up a
test ldap database with the following data being fairly typical:

dn: dc=rnib, dc=org, dc=uk
dc: rnib
o: rnib
objectclass: organization
dn: cn=hairya,dc=rnib,dc=org,dc=uk
cn: hairya
sn: aireya
userPassword: hairya

I'm using this in the slapd.conf file:

suffix  "dc=rnib, dc=org, dc=uk"
suffix  "o=rnib, c=GB"
rootdn  "cn=Manager, dc=rnib, dc=org, dc=uk"
rootdn  "cn=Manager, o=rnib, c=GB"

I have started with this in Apache:

 AuthType Basic
 AuthName ldap
 AuthLDAPURL ldap://priory.rnib.org.uk/ou=People, o=rnib?cn
 require valid-user

(Priory is the name of my test machine. Apache is running on the same
machine, but this will not be the case for the production system).

Although I can add to the database (something that has taken several months
for me to get working, although I've been working more off than on with
regards to this) the above isn't working.

Basically, do I need to specify "userPassword" in the ldif format file, and
what kind of encryption does auth_ldap support? ie, should I prefix with
{crypt}, {sha} , {md5} accordingly? I have looked in the documentation for
auth_ldap, but it is scant.

I'm currently using openldap-1.2.9-6 on RedHat 6.2, Apache-mod_ssl
1.3.20-2.8.4, Openssl 0.9.6 and auth_ldap-1.4.0-3. These are installed with

Once I get this working I'll be looking at tacacs+ or radius.
