Missing mod_auth_sspi xampp 1.7.0

Postby Abstruso » 24. December 2008 20:51

Apache module "modules/mod_auth_sspi.so" seems to be missing in Xampp 1.7.0. (7-zip EXE) I have been using it in Xampp 1.6.6.

Does anybody know where did it go? Any substitutes ?

Is your issue SVN related? - I have no knowledge of SVN...

...but in the httpd.conf file try un-commenting the lines below one at a time and see if that helps your issue - maybe start with the mod_authz_svn.so first.
Don't forget to save the conf file then restart Apache after un-commenting each individual module in case there is any issues with Apache starting up again.

Code: Select all
### SVN 1.5.4 ###
#LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
#LoadModule authz_svn_module modules/mod_authz_svn.so

This Google may have some clues for you.

You could also try, if you still have the mod_auth_sspi.so module from your 1.6.6 version, to copy it into the .\xampp\apache\modules folder and then un-comment the line in the httpd.conf file but be aware that the latest Apache version may have a spasm if that module is no longer supported.

I may be barking up the wrong tree if it is not SVN related. :)

No, it is not SVN related. We are developing a small intranet application. 'mod_auth_sspi' allows user authentication against Windows accounts (domain and local - I don't think these would work with LDAP ). After the authentication is done, the application decides user privileges based on the username returned by mod_sspi_auth.

I am under the impression that mod_sspi_auth development is discontinued, so it may insecure, and we could live with LDAP authentication, but using local Windows accounts is quite convenient.

I might be wrong, but I don't think mod_authz_svn.so could serve the same purpose.

Copying the file 'mod_auth_sspi.so' from a previous version didn't work either, Apache refused to start.

Oh, my... http://bugs.xampp.org/ seems to be off-line... no good trying to get some work done at Christmas Day :D

Happy Christmas to everybody!

My mistake, Apache refused to start because of an error in php.ini. It works using mod_auth_sspi.so from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mod-auth-sspi/.
