Re-assigning to the apache team
Comment 4 Chuck Short (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-06 15:06:10 UTC seems to have fallen off the face of the earth. is this module mirrored somewhere else?

Comment 5 Minati jean michel 2004-05-11 07:36:35 UTC is back,I'll test the ebuild
Comment 6 Minati jean michel 2004-05-11 08:11:14 UTC
it compile and install, but I have troubles to get apache running with it :

bash-2.05b# /etc/init.d/apache2 start

new ebuild (1.1.4)

this should work correctly, although still apache2 only. i think if you have
either apache1 or both installed, this will break. could someone who has
apache1 running test (and maybe even correct ;)) this?

sample conf for mod_ldap_userdir-1.1.4

this should go into net-www/mod_ldap_userdir/files/
Comment 9 Minati jean michel 2004-05-11 10:24:37 UTC
I had both apache installed.
let's test the new ebuild.

Patch for mod_ldap_userdir-1.1.4.ebuild.enable support for apache 1.x

I tested your new ebuild ,it works with both apache installed.
also I made this patch to add support for apache 1.x .
Note that I just setuped apache to load the module, I didn t made tests with a
real ldap server,since I don t have one at home.
Comment 11 Chuck Short (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-26 17:55:03 UTC
Added to cvs, thanks for the ebuild.
Comment 12 Patrick Goldmann 2004-05-27 04:26:58 UTC
well, the ebuild now in portage has a bug (at least 1.1.4).
myconf="${myconf} --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs2" should be
myconf="${myconf} --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs2". i think it's the same way for 1.1.1, not tried tho. gotta run now...

Comment 14 Daniel Webert 2004-08-18 19:44:32 UTC
why do i have to install apache1 if i just want to use it w/ apache2? can someone check the ebuild/depends/flags plz ...

root@porkoo ~ # 
===> emerge -vp mod_ldap_userdir

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Comment 15 Minati jean michel 2004-08-19 00:48:54 UTC
do you have apache2 in USE ?

several bugfixes for the ebuild

fixed the DEPEND problem. also fixed 2 typos...
Comment 17 Jason Galyon 2004-10-20 14:33:31 UTC
the last patch has not been commited to CVS for Portage thus the 1.1.4 ebuild still has the defects it fixed.
Comment 18 Daniel Palmer 2004-11-04 14:10:43 UTC
Yes, I also had issues with the depend and the broken --with-apxs2.   I didn't test the patch but looks like I made the same modifications and it compiled fine on amd64.  Please commit patch to portage and add at least ~amd64.

This fixes the depend issues between apache-1 and apache-2 

I'm sorry if this is a dupe but after  trying many different methods this is
the cleanest way i've come across so far to make sure both major versions of
apache is supported at build time and that *all* the files actually get
installed when apache2 is in use.
Comment 20 Benedikt Böhm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-19 23:08:09 UTC
a new mod_ldap_userdir ebuild is in portage since the apache herds package refresh, please test it. also look at

Upgrade Instructions:

After we have refreshed the packages on 8th Jan, to upgrade you will need to
do the following.

If you do not want to install masked/unstable packages on your machine(s),
these ebuilds will be unmasked and marked stable as soon as we have
determined that everything is working properly.

- unmask all needed packages (using /etc/portage/package.unmask and
- emerge -uav world

With this update, we are bringing some changes to the Apache configuration:

- /etc/apache{,2}/conf is moving to be /etc/apache{,2}
- new httpd.conf replaces commonapache{,2}.conf and apache{,2}.conf files
- /etc/apache{,2}/conf/vhosts is moving to be /etc/apache{,2}/vhosts.d

After installing this update, you will need to manually migrate any changes
you've made to your existing configuration files into the new configuration
Comment 21 Patrick Goldmann 2005-01-20 16:17:55 UTC
Tested. Builds and runs just fine. Just two issues:
The ebuild says it's gonna install the configuration file in /etc/apache2/modules.d/1.1.4-r1/47_mod_ldap_userdir.conf whereas it's really in /etc/apache2/modules.d/47_mod_ldap_userdir.conf.
Second thing is one has to be careful about permissions on that file as it's gonna hold a password.

it is set to 600 now, but i'm currently not able to test it, would be nice if anyone could just give it a try
