LDAP Support

Greetings,

I need LDAP support for Piwigo.  The existing extension with various tweaks don't work correctly.  When I try to save the settings, it tells me the plugin is not activated.  Or the original version says successful, but the string is wrong (like ldaps:\\ldaps:\\servername) and cannot login.

I tried Apache authentication, but I don't have $conf[‘apache_authentication’  in the config_default.inc.php file.

Piwigo is so good, so functional, but LDAP needs addressing!!

Piwigo version: 2.8.6
PHP version: 5.3.3
MySQL version: 5.1.73
Piwigo URL: http:// private

Can anyone help?  Funding might be available!

Thanks,

Matt

Re: LDAP Support

I guess it shouldn't be too hard to extend the Piwigo-Social-Connect plugin for a generic OpenID provider and use Keycloak with LDAP user federation.

Re: LDAP Support

hey,

it took me some time, but in the end i found a working ldap plugin. It is based on the old Ldap_Login by december22 but adapted to work with the current version of piwigo.

https://github.com/kvakanet/ldap_login/tree/config2base
or direct link: https://github.com/kvakanet/ldap_login/ … g2base.zip

unzip and move the extracted folder (ldap_login-config2base) to the plugin directory (usually /var/www/piwigo/plugins/)
rename folder to ldap_login

go to the admin interface and activate.

Then go to plugin-settings and adapt to our LDAP.

Important:
The settings in "Server Settings -> Base DN" and "LDAP User -> User Branch" stack.
in my example all my users are in "ou=users,dc=example,dc=com"

So i set my Base DN to "dc=example,dc=com" (both in Server Settings and also in Ldap attributes.
in "LDAP Users -> Users Branch" i set "ou=users"

AND IT WORKS! :)

P.S. you also need to have php-ldap/php5-ldap (depends on your system) installed

Re: LDAP Support

Couple more hints to get the latest version working (I used the one from vslcatena, also via github):

* ensure the extracted directory is called "Ldap_Login" otherwise you may get the "plugin not activated" error. Looks like Piwigo uses the directory name to activate a plugin but then also checks against the plugin name at some point. So basically the directory name must match the plugin name.

* ensure you set the file permissions/ownership of the plugin directory to whatever your piwigo installation is running under. By default on debian/apache this will be the "www-data" user. If you don't do this, the plugin won't be able to save its configuration as it does it in a data file and not the database.

Re: LDAP Support

I have just installed and enabled this fork of the LDAP plugin

https://github.com/VSLCatena/ldap_login


WOrks a treat :-)

I did get some errors when there were no values in the configuration fields but once configured, it worked fine.

Re: LDAP Support

Until today I only had a production server to test this extension. Right now I've created a development server for piwigo and this extension. Sorry for the delay. In case of problems please use https://github.com/VSLCatena/ldap_login/issues
