2012-01-24 04:11:26 -0500 asked a question Configure LDAP authentication

I can see a few people seem to have had success setting up askbot to authenticate against active directory but I'm having trouble with it, could anyone clarify how these fields should be used:

LDAP service provider name: I tried "Active Directory"

URL for LPAP service: I tried "ldap://10.23.2.1:389"

Explain how to change pwd: left blank

With these settings I get an Internal Server Error, and nothing inserted into the log.

I can't migrate either, this is what happens. I think I will blow away the DB and start again.

I get an internal server error when logging on a user after a fresh install. The log file says this:

My database encoding is correct (ENGINE=MyISAM)

I have searched for an answer here but coming up blank ... are there any pointers for this situation?
