Unable to Log in

Post by tdavies »

Hi,

I am unable to log in. I enabled ldap and entered the wrong settings and know I cannot log in. Is there a way to disable the ldap?

Forma version 1.4 installed on a Linux server.

Any help is appreciated!
Thank You!

Are you able to log in as the first admin you created at installation time ?

Re: Unable to Log in after changing to LDAP

Hello, I changed the Advanced settings to LDAP authentication

Now I cannot login with old admin to access the Admin Menu as before

How do I reverse the LDAP settings ?

Thanks

from phpmyadmin you could execute this statement:

update core_setting set ldap_used = 'off'

There are 2 ways to remove the LDAP authentication"
OPTION 1
-------------
1. Create the admin userid that was used for installing Forma on your Active Directory.
2. Login to Forma with the new userid , go to "Admin Area/Main/Configuration/Setting"
3. Click on "LDAP" button and uncheck the "Activate LDAP authentication" button.

OPTION 2
-----------------
1. After installing the LMS, import some userid from your AD into LMS.
2. Go to "Admin Area/Main/Users/User management
3. Click on the "Forma" on Organization Chart area to display the list of all users in window below.
4. check one of the users and click on the "Edit" icon on the right hand side.
5. Change the level to "SuperAdmin" and save.

Now you have a different SuperAdmin apart from the local Admin for LMS
If you activate LDAP auhentication, you will no longer have access to the local admin, but you can login with the userid you added as Super Admin (which already exists in AD) to get to the Admin Area and uncheck the LDAP authentication

Thank you deevman for this complete explanation: this is something that happens to a lot of people on this forum, where they just try to play around with options settings

Thanks for sharing.
