KB-2500: How to get Apache sub-version to work with Centrify Apache plugin?

Centrify DirectControl ,   Centrify DirectControl Plugins ,  

12 April,16 at 11:13 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl for Applications.
 
Question:
 
How does one get the Apache sub-version client to use the AD credentials?
 
Answer:
 
If the Apache to front-end subversion is used, Centrify's Apache plugin module can be purchased.
 
Directions.
 
1) Edit the main Apache server configuration file, httpd.conf to include the appropriate Centrify DirectControl for Apache module in the Dynamic Shared Object section.
 
2) Any of the Centrify DirectControl shared object files can be added using the LoadModule directive. Be aware that the location of the modules to load is different depending on whether the 32-bit or 64-bit versions Apache is being run:
 
32-bit Apache: /usr/share/centrifydc/apache/lib
32-bit Apache: /usr/share/centrifydc/apache/lib64
 
Example:
 
  LoadModule centrifydc_auth_module /usr/share/centrifydc/apache/lib/mod_auth_centrifydc_20.so
 
However, the simplest way to add Centrify DirectControl to the Apache server is by using the Include directive and specifying the location of the default Centrify DirectControl for Apache configuration file for the version of Apache being used. The default Centrify DirectControl for Apache configuration files are located in the directory:
 
  /usr/share/centrifydc/apache/samples/conf 
 
Example:
 
  Include /usr/share/centrifydc/apache/samples/conf/centrify22.conf
 
 
2) Please make sure subversion supports PAM, see: http://paulosman.me/2007/01/04/pam-authentication-for-apache-trac-and-svn.html
If PAM is used, the silent Kerberos authentication capabilities that come with Centrify's Apache plugin will be lost.
