Get the packages

Official repository

If you run Debian stable, testing or unstable, the packages are directly installable:

apt-get install lemonldap-ng

Tip

Packages from Debian repository may not be up to date but are security-maintained by Debian Security Team for “stable” release and LTS team for “oldstable” release. Then if you don’t need some new features or aren’t concerned by a bug fixed earlier, this is a good choice. You can also use Debian backports or “testing”/”unstable” packages, team maintained. Here is the list of Debian versions.

Danger

LLNG Ubuntu packages are not in the “universe” but in the “multiverse”. This means they are not security-maintained. If you use them, you should follow our security advisories on lemonldap-ng-users@ow2.org.

LL::NG repository

You can add this repository to have recent packages.

First, make sure your system can install packages from HTTPS repositories:

apt install apt-transport-https

You will need to trust the following GPG key : image0

wget -O - https://lemonldap-ng.org/_media/rpm-gpg-key-ow2 | apt-key add -

Then, add the official LL::NG repository

vi /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lemonldap-ng.list
# LemonLDAP::NG repository
deb     https://lemonldap-ng.org/deb stable main
deb-src https://lemonldap-ng.org/deb stable main

Tip

  • Use the oldstable repository to get packages from previous major version
  • Use the testing repository to get packages from next major version
  • Use the 2.0 repository to avoid upgrade to next major version

Finally update your APT cache:

apt update

Manual download

Packages are available on the Download page.

Install packages

Attention

By default packages will require Nginx. If you want to use Apache2, install it first with mod_perl:

apt install apache2 libapache2-mod-perl2 libapache2-mod-fcgid

With apt

apt install lemonldap-ng

With dpkg

Before installing the packages, install dependencies.

Then:

dpkg -i liblemonldap-ng-* lemonldap-ng*

First configuration steps

Change default DNS domain

By default, DNS domain is example.com. You can change it quick with a sed command. For example, we change it to ow2.org:

sed -i 's/example\.com/ow2.org/g' /etc/lemonldap-ng/* /var/lib/lemonldap-ng/conf/lmConf-1.json

Upgrade

If you upgraded LL::NG, check all upgrade notes.

DNS

Configure your DNS server to resolve names with your server IP:

  • auth.<your domain>: main portal, must be public
  • manager.<your domain>: manager, only for adminsitrators
  • test1.<your domain>, test2.<your domain>: sample applications

Follow the next steps

File location

  • Configuration is in /etc/lemonldap-ng
  • LemonLDAP::NG configuration (edited by the Manager) is in /var/lib/lemonldap-ng/conf/
  • All Perl modules are in the VENDOR perl directory (/usr/share/perl5/)
  • All Perl scripts/pages are in /var/lib/lemonldap-ng/
  • All lemonldap-ng tools are in /usr/share/lemonldap-ng/bin/
  • All static content (examples, CSS, images, etc.) is in /usr/share/lemonldap-ng/
  • Apache configuration files are in /etc/lemonldap-ng and linked in /etc/apache2/sites-available and /etc/nginx/sites-available

Build your packages

You can also get the LemonLDAP::NG archive and make the package yourself:

tar xzf lemonldap-ng-*.tar.gz
cd lemonldap-ng-*
make debian-packages
