I hope I can explain this correctly. I have a LAMP server (with MediaWiki) that was working until I ruined it.
I wanted MW to authenticate via LDAP, but my problem is a little more.
The eth0 is disabled at boot, and I must manually enable eth0 each time I reboot. (I thought it a minor inconvenience, and I would figure out a fix for that later...)
For ldap, I followed the directions here:
to enable ldap authentication from a remote server. The last direction was to reboot to enable ldap. Which I did. (How dumb!)
The problem that resulted: authenticate using the network, but no working network connection.
The GUI doesn't fully load, though I can get a terminal window and log in.
There are two error messages:
Error starting GNOME Settings Daemon.
Somethings such as themes, sounds or background settings may not work correctly. Last error message was:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
The applet nm-applet has crashed
ifconfig eth0 returns
Link encap: Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:02040:7E:7D

What is the location of the file for enabling eth0 ?
And /Or how can I disable ldap authentication?
Am I heading in the right direction to repair?
