Description of problem:
Module mod_auth_ldap is not contained in base package and also not available as separate RPM - any reason?
Only mod_authz_ldap is available, but this has some missing features.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install httpd
2. try to enable LDAP authentication
Actual Results: fails
Expected Results: mod_auth_ldap should be packaged, too, because it's provided and supported by Apache2
Internal RFE bug #150589 entered; will be considered for future releases.
The 2.0.46-level mod_auth_ldap/mod_ldap code was not deemed to be
production-ready, hence its omission from the httpd package in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3.
This problem is resolved in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red
Hat does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update for currently deployed systems.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
