Setting up LDAP on 1.8


I have just started playing with elgg so forgive me in advance if I ask any dumb questions.  I have setup ldap on my apache server and this works ok.  Have installed ldap_auth plugin but struggling to get this to work. 

I guess my first question is - will ldap_auth plugin work with elgg 1.8 ?  Just looking at the log, looks to me like a bunch of functions have been deprecated - which makes me think it does not work on 1.8



  • What do you mean by "setup ldap on my apache server"?

    I haven't tried it, but the ldap_auth plugin should work without any modifications with 1.8.

  • I have tried it and meanwhile I was copiying the exact Data which made elgg 1.7.10 connect to LDAP in the LDAP-Settings of 1.8 it could not connect and authenticate any in my LDAP-Server registered user.

    Please test the LDAP-Plugin for 1.8 since it is one of the most important plugins!
