Sorry, new member and just started using ldap (openldap). I am not
sure whether I can ask this question here as the name of the list
specifies "technical", if not please tell me list(s) where I can do
For starters I have read the O'reilly book, I tried to figure out my
questions using the help in the FAQ's, I searched to net ... but I am
a little out of my depth in the moment.
I am trying to get LDAP to work to help authentication in wordpress
and moodle, with wordpress being the main part and moodle uses LDAP
for the authentication (subscription based) and some info for each
student from LDAP.
So far I can add entries to LDAP from wordpress, I can login to
wordpress using LDAP.
I have got it to work to allow access to moodle when the correct
username (uid) and password is found in LDAP but I want to add some
info about each student to LDAP, one the country and the other being
the city (and later some more).
So far I can add enough information for subscribers (billing address,
uid, telephone etc) using the standard schemas and object classes,
but I need a little mode info for each.
This is what I have:
dn: uid=gemma, ou=moodle, o=Subscriptions, dc=MyDomain, dc=com, dc=au
I presume the equals sign is a typo.
I end up with an error "invalid structural object class
I think means the country needs to be higher up the tree, but then I
would have to create the tree branches for every country (for each
Subscribers will come from different countries and countless cities
(which I haven't added yet) as this is part of the target audience.
I am not sure how to structure this.
Are there any ldif file around I can have a look that deal with
subscriptions like this?
It is not a matter of ldif design it is a matter of object class
design. An entry may only have one structural object class chain. In
your case it is person, organizationalPerson, inetorgPerson, this
structure is valid. If the other two classes emailPerson and
nameViewPerson are declared structural as well, that would cause an
error. As this object classes are not standard track classes but
private, you may change the classes from structural to auxiliary.
An other question would be, why do you define a attribute type
countryCode while there is an attribute type countryName allready in
