The goal of this page is to configure MediaWiki to use eDirectory for user authentication based on group membership.

Prerequisites

Before we begin, I am going to assume that you have the following configured:

  • MediaWiki Configured and running on Server (I'm working on another wiki right now that will detail the steps needed to get MediaWiki running on SLES 9
  • eDirectory installed and configured (I'm using eDirectory 8.8)

Here is how my servers are configured for reference

  • eDirectory Server has a DNS name of edir.wikidemo.org
  • wiki server has a DNS name of wiki.wikidemo.org
  • eDirectory configuration
    • users are in ou=users,o=novell
    • created a group called wiki in the users OU
