WPMU Ldap 4.0 Released

August 22nd, 2012 1 comment

It’s been a while, and this is long over due.  There are a number of changes with the 4.0 release of the plugin.

  • The SourceForge WPMU Ldap project and code base will no longer be updated.  This website will still exist, but the primary hosting for the plugin has been moved to WordPress (
  • Since WPMU and WP merged code bases, things have come a long way.  Starting with version 4.0, the plugin should now be installed in the standard “plugin” folder and activated “Network Wide” and requires WordPress 3.2+.  This will allow for much easier installations and also notifications of upgrades.

Now, for those of you that are running this plugin currently – don’t worry, the migration is fairly simple.

  1. Make sure you have a network admin enabled non-ldap account setup and available in the blog
  2. Remove the current plugin from mu-plugins (all configuration options will stay in the WP database)
  3. Install version 4.x of the plugin into the standard plugins folder
  4. Network Activate the plugin
  5. Thats it! The plugin should now be re-activated with all of your previous settings.

So, go get it – try it out, and let me know if there are any issues!

I plan to put some time into working on some of the outstanding issues over the next week or two. However, I have received issues via just about every method of communication out there.  To make sure nothing is getting missed, if you are aware of an active issue that is NOT posted here – please either post it on the SourceForge tracker or reply back with a comment.

WPMU Ldap 3.1.1 Released

March 23rd, 2011 6 comments

I have fixed a few of the minor bugs that have popped up.  See the changelog for details.  I have also correctly bumped the revision number in the scripts (sorry about that).

As a reminder, the plugin should be installed in the “mu-plugins” folder.  This folder does not exist by default in 3.x – but you can create it (wp-content/mu-plugins).  See the documentation for more info.

The plugin can be download from the Sourceforge project page.  As always, I hope you enjoy it and please report any problems or suggestions you might have!

WPMU Ldap 3.1 Released

February 24th, 2011 12 comments

With the release of wordpress 3.1, some of the core functions the plugins used had to be modified.  Because of this, the 3.1 release of the plugin is *only* available with WordPress 3.1 and newer.  If you are still using WordPress 3.0.x, this plugin is not for you.

The main change in this release is the ability for pages to show on the network admin page, instead of the site admin page.

The plugin can be download from the Sourceforge project page.  As always, I hope you enjoy it and please report any problems or suggestions you might have!

WPMU Ldap 3.0 Released!

June 22nd, 2010 27 comments

After much work and preparation, the 3.0 plugin is ready to go.  Most of the kinks should be worked out of it, but if you notice anything please let me know!  Just like the previous versions, the plugin must be installed in the “mu-plugins” folder.  The only difference with WP 3.0, is that the folder does not exist by default.  You will need to create the “mu-plugins” folder under “wp-content”.  Drop the files in there and you should be good to go!

The plugin also now supports basic group authentication for both allow and deny groups.  Thanks to the help of Ken Newquist, we were able to test this extensively across both Active Directory and OpenLDAP platforms.  Example configurations are available on the Documentation page.

Other fixes and changes included in this release:

  • Basic deny/allow group logic
  • Changed bulk add logic to not automatically create blogs if the option is enabled – wordpress does not support this functionality
  • Fixed issues with connection check not working when plugin is not enabled
  • Fixed typo in default ldaps port in the documentation
  • Fixed issue where local users would still attempt to authenticate against ldap
  • Added better error checking on failure when adding users from the add user menu

The plugin can be download from the Sourceforge project page.  As always, I hope you enjoy it and please report any problems or suggestions you might have!

New Blog Address

In an effort to simplify my own setup, the blog address has been changed to  The old address will redirect traffic so any existing links out there should be fine.

Group Support Available in SVN Trunk (WordPress 3.0 Only)

February 19th, 2010 36 comments

For those of you testing on the 3.0 trunk, I have added basic allow and deny group support for overall blog access.  There is logic in there to handle nested groups as well.  However, I only have the ability to test this against an Active Directory server – so if any of you are connecting to openldap, opendirectory or something else and are willing to test, let me know how it works (or how it doesn’t)!

The road to 3.0

January 30th, 2010 16 comments

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the svn trunk will be in a very alpha state as I beginning testing and tweaking for the 3.0 WP release.  Anyone else who is testing – feel free to post back anything weird you may be noticing.  As of right now, things seem to function in a basic form.
