    LDAP subgroups with Apache on 10.10

    Hi all,

    I'm having some problems getting Apache to search LDAP subgroups. Otherwise LDAP authentication is working fine.

    I'm using the standard authnz_ldap module as included with the stock Apache2 build.

    'require ldap-group' works fine, but doesn't search any nested subgroups. When I add 'AuthLDAPMaxSubGroupDepth' as outlined here:

    I get the following error:

    Invalid command 'AuthLDAPMaxSubGroupDepth', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
    Action 'configtest' failed.

    I assume it's because I'm using the included 'authnz_ldap' module as opposed to 'mod_authnz_ldap' module. Can anyone confirm that? Or are they the same thing? If they are, why is 'AuthLDAPMaxSubGroupDepth' not recognised?

    If they are different, is there any way to force 'authnz_ldap' to search nested subgroups? Either that or do you know where I can download 'mod_authnz_ldap'? I can't find it anywhere.

    Thanks in advance,

    Are you sure authnz_ldap module is enable?

    If so, you should read you apache logs. I'm pretty sure threre's something there that can point you the issue...

    If you're not sure this module is enable, try to run

    a2enmod authnz_ldap
    with root privilegies
