Hi, folks. I'm working on project where I want to have the main web site accessible to anyone with an LDAP login and a specific application to be only available for people with a specific LDAP group. I'm relatively inexperience in Apache server configuration and totally new to LDAP. The main site eventually will be open to the world, but not during development.

I can get LDAP-based authentication working on / for everyone, but everything I've tried has either let everyone in to both / and /my-app or causes the server to start returning 500s for every request with very little information in the error logs explaining why.

My LDAP is set up as follows:

I have a top organization, dc=mysite,dc=com. Inside that, I have ou=People,dc=mysite,dc=com, and inside that, I have two inetOrgPersons, uid=wilma,ou=People,dc=mysite,dc=com and uid=betty,ou=People,dc=mysite,dc=com. They both also have the poxisAccount and shadowAccount object classes.

Inside dc=mysite,dc=com, I also have ou=Groups,dc=mysite,dc=com. Inside that, I have a POSIX group cn=super-admins,ou=Groups,dc=mysite,dc=com. Inside that, I have only uid=wilma,ou=People,dc=mysite,dc=com.

My default Apache configuration file has this:

Code:

<Location />
        AuthType Basic
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthName "Authentication"
        AuthLDAPInitialBindAsUser on
        AuthLDAPInitialBindPattern (.*) uid=$1,ou=people,dc=mysite,dc=com
        AuthLDAPURL ldap://localhost/DC=mysite,DC=com?uid
        require valid-user
</Location>


My configuration file for my-app has this:

Code:

<IfModule mod_alias.c>
    Alias /my-app /usr/share/my-app/htdocs
</IfModule>

<Directory /usr/share/my-app/htdocs/>
    DirectoryIndex index.php
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None

    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    # Other stuff that doesn't seem relevant.
</Directory>


I've tried adding variations of this to both the default configuration file under Location /my-app and to Directory under the configuration for my-app.

edit: I don't know where the code sample for here went! Here it is:

Code:

#<Location /my-app>                                                                                                                                                                                   
    #       AuthType Basic                                                                                                                                                                                   
    #       AuthBasicProvider ldap                                                                                                                                                                           
    #       AuthName "Access to my-app is Restricted"                                                                                                                                                     
    #       AuthLDAPInitialBindAsUser on                                                                                                                                                                     
    #       AuthLDAPInitialBindPattern (.*) uid=$1,ou=people,dc=mysite,dc=com                                                                                                                             
    #       AuthLDAPURL ldap://localhost/DC=mysite,DC=com?uid                                                                                                                                             
    #       require ldap-group cn=super-admins,ou=Groups,dc=mysite,dc=com                                                                                                                                 
    #       AuthLDAPMaxSubGroupDepth 1                                                                                                                                                                       
    #       AuthLDAPSubgroupAttribute member                                                                                                                                                                 
    #       AuthLDAPSubGroupClass group

I'm running Apache 2.4.7 on Ubuntu 10.4.3. I have tried searching here for similar topics as well as on the 'net generally and haven't been able to figure it out. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi,

not a solution but maybe some hints?

I used .htaccess instead of using apache's config files - so I didn't need to restart apache after every reconfiguration Very Happy

Big differences:
* I used a service-account for doing the bind to LDAP
* used the same AuthName for both directories.

My Setup:
* Windows 7 x64
* Apache 2.4.29 x64
* OpenLDAP (running on the same Windows-notebook)
* user matthias is also member of the "wlan"-group
* user timo is not member of this "wlan"-group
* /myweb/apache_test/ldap_auth/ is accessible to every LDAP-user
* /myweb/apache_test/ldap_auth/subdir/ is only accessible to the "wlan"-LDAP-group
* /myweb/apache_test/ldap_auth/.htaccess looks this:
Code:
IndexIgnore .ht* */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

Require valid-user

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Test ldap"
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=serviceaccount,dc=example,dc=com"
AuthLDAPBindPassword secretpassword
AuthLDAPRemoteUserIsDN On
AuthLDAPUrl ldap://localhost:389/dc=example,dc=com?cn?sub
LDAPReferrals Off

* and this is the content of my /myweb/apache_test/ldap_auth/subdir/.htaccess:
Code:
IndexIgnore .ht* */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

Require ldap-group cn=wlan,ou=groups,dc=radde,dc=de

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Test ldap"
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=serviceaccount,dc=example,dc=com"
AuthLDAPBindPassword secretpassword
AuthLDAPRemoteUserIsDN On
AuthLDAPUrl ldap://localhost:389/dc=example,dc=com?cn?sub
LDAPReferrals Off


Result:
* accessing /myweb/apache_test/ldap_test/ results in a popup for entering the credentials - login works with both accounts matthias and timo
* accessing /myweb/apache_test/ldap_test/subdir/ results in a new popup for enetering the credentials if I am logged in as timo (which is not member of the group) or it simply works if I am logged in as user matthias.

Greetings
Matthias
