BlackBoxPortal.php & adLDAP for Active Directory portal login?


Has anyone had any success configuring the BlackBoxPortal.php file for Active Directory?

I’m using the standard BlackBox.php with adLDAP.php for our staff login accounts but I’m not a coder so I haven’t had any luck getting adLDAP & PHP to return an email address for the BlackBoxPortal.php

Any help would be most appreciated!


We haven’t tried this ourselves (no AD server), but I think you may have better luck using the sample Live Lookup AD/LDAP file linked from here:

That file actually connects to AD and returns data. Obviously you’ll need to remove the Live Lookup stuff and XML output and instead just use the email that’s returned to send back in that function.
