OK, I've searched all day and followed every guide I can and I'm still not getting anywhere with this.
and no matter what I put in the config for ldap I get the same error:
AH00526: Syntax error on line 8 of /etc/httpd/conf.modules.f/ldap.conf:
Unknown Authn provider: ldap
the offending config file is here:
Require host internal.domain
AuthName "LDAP/AD Authentication"
I've tried in the vhost config and in the above ldap config and get the same error.
Against better judgement I also disabled selinux (setenforce 0) but to no avail.
Any thoughts anybody?
