How to add new users with LDAP authentication and Apache 2.2 Ubuntu 10.04 lts
I have set up Apache to use LDAP authentication on our Ubuntu production web server. The users are authenticated on another server (AuthLDAPBindDN) which is not controlled by us (we currently don't have root access to it).
Therefore, my question is, How does LDAP handle the authentication of new users? At the moment, new users are unable to login and are presented with a 401 status code, which is fine for now... But would it be possible to divert the new users to a web page where they could fill out their details and be able to login. i.e. If the logon user name is not recognized, divert the user to the create_user script.
Also, would any changes need to be configured on our production server, or the server that LDAP authenticates against?
Any pointers would be great.
