LDAP Apache

For Apache versions < 2.2, then you need to install and load a module called mod_auth_ldap. For Apache 2.2 onwards this module was rewritten and became mod_authnz_ldap.

Once you have the required module loaded, here's a .htaccess example for Apache 2.2:

AuthName "LDAP Auth Example"
AuthType Basic
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthLDAPURL ldap://yourzimbraserver:389/ou=people,dc=yourdomain,dc=com?uid?sub?(objectClass=organizationalPerson)
AuthLDAPBindDN uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra
AuthLDAPBindPassword yourldappassword
AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
require valid-user

The first part of "yourzimbraserver" is the address of your Zimbra server running LDAP.

The second part "dc=yourdomain,dc=com" is the domain and domain extension you would like to authenticate against.

If you want users to have to enter their Zimbra e-mail address instead of their user ID then change "?uid" to "?mail" in the AuthLDAPURL directive.

If you have Apache 2.0 then "AuthBasicProvider ldap" doesn't work. Change it to "AuthLDAPEnabled on" instead.

As of ZCS 6.0 anonymous LDAP bind was disabled by default for new installs. If upgrading from v5 to v6, anonymous LDAP bind is still enabled so you can dispense with the "AuthLDAPBindDN" and "AuthLDAPBindPassword" directives. See bug 15378, comment #39 for further information.

You can limit the access to certain users by changing the require directive to:

require user user@example.com

Performance

You may consider installing mod_ldap to cache your LDAP connections.

Single Login

You can then use [[1]Preauth] to do single sign on (sort of).
