Configuration problems with pam_smb, mod_auth_pam
I am attempting to configure our Debian webserver, running Apache, to
use our Windows PDC when authenticating for secure web access. I have
followed instructions that I found on the web, but I am having trouble.
I keep getting a "500 internal server error" when I go to login to a
secured area. In my error.log, it says:
[Wed May 29 09:55:05 2002] [crit] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] configuration
error: couldn't check user. No user file?: /admin
I don't know if this means that it can't contact the domain controller,
My .htaccess looks like this:
AuthName "PUSD Website Admin"
If I require a valid user, does it mean a user vaild for the NT domain,
or the Debian box? This is the way the .htaccess file was in the
example I followed.
My /etc/pam.d/httpd file looks like this:
auth required pam_smb_auth.so debug
account required pam_pwdb.so debug md5
Finally, my /etc/pam_smb.conf file looks like this:
"PUSD" is the domain, and endeavor is the PDC. I can successfully ping
the host "endeavor" from the Debian box. Where have I gone wrong? At
this point, I am having a hard time troubleshooting. Can anyone point
me in the proper direction?
