Hi,

First of all, I convey my sincere thanks to the team, taken such a fantastic effort for Jforum. It is awesome.

I setup the LDAP authentication successfully and all the LDAP user able to login into the forum, except the 'admin' user which I created upon installation.

I hope, the Root cause could be the LDAP authentication shift from default authentication.

Could any please give me some light on this issue. I feel deadlocked, because 'admin' user only may have the 'Control panel' access.

please note: Jforum verion 2.1.6

Thanking you in advance,
Ramesh.

You probably has an user in your ldap directory that you want to act as admin, right? so, open your database manager, gets the user_id from jforum_user and insert a new record into jforum_user_groups, associating the user_id to the 'Administration' group found in the table jforum_groups.

That's all.

Hi Rafael,

Yes, I got fixed it with your directions, given the 'admin' privilege to an LDAP authenticated user.

Thanks a ton. 8)
