RE: basic authentication error against ldap

Hi Adam

When you said, refer to the documentation, were you talking about the
link your provided
at the bottom? (ftp://ftp.kalamazoolinux.org/pub/pdf/ldapv3.pdf)

I downloaded the file and couldn't find anything on how to enable

>From the bug link below
(http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-bugs/200206/msg00126.html), it

"to enable LDAPv2 kbind in HEAD, use env ol_enable_kbind=yes

Is this it, or does this only apply to the HEAD version, or was it a
temporary fix at the time?

I did a ./configure --help and the only option I see would be:

--enable-referrals      enable LDAPv2+ Referrals (experimental) [no]

what if I don't want Referrals (or is that an integral part of
ldapV2)? The word "experimental" also worries me a little bit.

Lastly, if I run ./configure again with this option, have I got to
include all the other options I had included in my previous
./configure? And is there a need to rebuild the database afterwards or
will that "stick"? :)

Thanks in advance
Jose Correia

Or that this isn't really and OpenLDAP question,  but one about an
apache module.

No.  OpenLDAP 2.1.x only enables LDAPv3 by default.  You can enable
LDAPv2,  see
the documentation.

Yes,  that is exactly what it means.
