Authentication with LDAPAuthentication2 (LDAP Stack) in Docker Mediawiki

Leo Jiménez


Hello. I am trying to configure a LDAP authentication (not Active Directory) on my new Docker Mediawiki installation. But it is not working and I don't know why.

I appreciate any suggestion you can give me.


The logs are theoretically activated but these don't show much information.

Logs enabled in file LocalSettings.php:

$wgShowError = true;
$wgShowErrors = true;
$wgShowSQLError = true;
$wgShowSQLErrors = true;
$wgShowException = true;
$wgShowExceptions = true;
$wgShowExceptionDetails = true;

// Groups from MediaWiki core
$wgDBerrorLog = '/var/log/mediawiki/dberror.log';
$wgDebugLogGroups = array(
  'resourceloader' => '/tmp/resourceloader.log',
  'exception' => '/tmp/exception.log',
  'error' => '/tmp/error.log',
  'ratelimit' => '/tmp/ratelimit.log',
  'exception-json' => '/tmp/exception.json',

  // Extra log groups from your extension
  'LDAPProvider' => '/tmp/LDAPProvider.log',
  'LDAPAuthentication2' => '/tmp/LDAPAuthentication2.log',
  #'somegroup' => '/var/log/mediawiki/somegroup.log',


Logs enabled in /usr/local/etc/php/php.ini-production file:

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED
log_errors = On


Plugins enabled (according to documentation):

  • PluggableAuth

  • LDAPProvider

  • LDAPAuthentication2


Configuration in LocalSettings.php:

(I need a user with read rights?)

wfLoadExtension( 'PluggableAuth' );
$wgPluggableAuth_EnableAutoLogin = false; #if true, disables the logout option
$wgPluggableAuth_EnableLocalLogin = true;

wfLoadExtension( 'LDAPProvider' );
$LDAPProviderDomainConfigs = "$IP/ldapprovider.json";

wfLoadExtension( 'LDAPAuthentication2' );
$LDAPAuthentication2AllowLocalLogin = true;


ldapprovider.json file:

  "XXX": {
    "connection": {
      "server": "ldap.xxx.yy.zz",
      "port": "636",
      "enctype": "ssl",
      "options": {
        "LDAP_OPT_DEREF": 1
      "basedn": "dc=xxx,dc=yy,dc=zz",
      "userbasedn": "cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=xxx,dc=yy,dc=zz",
      "searchstring": "uid=USER-NAME,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=xxx,dc=yy,dc=zz"
    "userinfo": {
      "attributes-map": {
        "email": "mail",
        "realname": "cn"
