Use your existing LDAP as authentication-backend for your wordpress!
So what are the differences to other WordPress-LDAP-Authentication-Plugins?
- Flexible: You are totaly free in which LDAP-backend to use. Due to the extensive configuration you can freely decide how to do the authentication of your users. It simply depends on your filters
- Independent: As soon as a user logs in, it is added/updated to the WordPress’ user-database to allow wordpress to always use the correct data. You only have to administer your users once.
- Failsafe: Due to the users being created in WordPress’ User-database they can also log in when the LDAP-backend currently is gone.
- Role-Aware: You can map WordPress’ roles to values of an existing LDAP-attribute.
For more Information on the configuration have a look at https://github.com/heiglandreas/authLdap
- Upload the extracted folder
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
