LDAP session backend

An Apache session module was created by LL::NG team to store sessions in an LDAP directory.

This module is not part of LL::NG distibution, and can be found on CPAN: Apache::Session::LDAP.
This module is also available in the contribs directory of LL::NG subversion repository.

Sessions will be stored as LDAP entries, like this:

dn: cn=6fb7c4a170a04668771f03b0a4747f46,ou=sessions,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: top
objectClass: applicationProcess
cn: 6fb7c4a170a04668771f03b0a4747f46
description: [serialized data]

Go in the Manager and set the LDAP session module (Apache::Session::LDAP) in General parameters » Sessions » Session storage » Apache::Session module and add the following parameters (case sensitive):

Required parameters
Name Comment Example
ldapServer URI of the server ldap://localhost
ldapConfBase DN of sessions branch ou=sessions,dc=example,dc=com
ldapBindDN Connection login cn=admin,dc=example,dc=password
ldapBindPassword Connection password secret

Restrict network access to the LDAP directory, and add specific ACL to session branch.

You can also use different user/password for your servers by overriding parameters globalStorage and globalStorageOptions in lemonldap-ng.ini file.
