Apache LDAP vhost driver
This is the new location of the Apache LDAP vhost driver written by Brian
Ferris. On July 3, 2007 I took over this project. This page will
have to stay untill I have had time to make a new one...
/Turbo Fredriksson, New Maintainer for the Apache LDAP vhost driver
Unfortunatly, the mailinglist
and the bugreport system isn't availible for the time being.
(I lost my co-location for my servers and I've currently squised in the most essentials
(my mail :) on my home server which doesn't have as good 'Net access as one could/would
A mailing list is now availible for discussions and announcements
related to this driver and other issues related to it.
To join the list, send a mail to
email@example.com. To subscribe to the CVS
commit list, send a mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Both lists are relative
But I made the source
code (version 1.0-9 made 20080528) availible here. This is the current checkout
from CVS, so it's the latest there is...
This release (1.0-9) should fix the segfaults quite
a number of people have reported! Thanx to Sebastien Cramatte at Zen Soluciones
for the sandbox to play with! The problem was quite embarassing, so I'm
not going to talk about this any more! :)
With the new maintainence, there is now a CVS repository and the CVS
repository can be viewed over the web at the URL
https://cvs.bayour.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb/mod_ldap_cfg/. To checkout the
1.0 version (unchanged from the 1.0 release done by Brian Ferris), execute
the following two commands after each other (just press the ENTER
key when asked for a password):
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/var/lib/cvs login
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/var/lib/cvs co -rUPSTREAM_1_0 modldapcfg
To retreive the latest CVS version, which have quite a number of changes
compared to the initial version released by Brian, check out
the CVS branch HEAD (replace UPSTREAM_1_0 with HEAD). The primary changes
so far is: Lot's of Apache 2.x API changes...
Bug report system
With the new maintainence, there is now also a bug report system at
my bugtracker (project mod_ldap_cfg).
A schema called mod_ldap_cfg is used. A
simple LDIF that uses this is also availible. I can also show you
a more complex LDIF. This is a modified version of my primary webservers
LDIF (I've just changed the names to protect the innocent :). I've also removed about
ten virtual hosts - to much work 'cleaning' the LDIF. Hopfully you'll get the picture
Btw, phpQLAdmin (my ISP management tool) supports
this schema perfectly (I'm using it live on my own machines - the only way I'm
currently adding/deleting and modifying Apache virtual hosts).
To setup Apache to use this module, the vhosts.conf
is used. This must be included from the httpd.conf file.
Debian GNU/Linux packages
The latest version (as of 20080528) can be found as Deb
packages for Apache 2 (compiled on
Debian GNU/Linux Lenny).
