I can't get LDAP authentication to work in the Joomla 1.5 app.

I ran JDiagnostic and it says the php ldap module isn't loaded

I tried do an apt-get install php5-ldap and the server can't find the package

Is this something to do with the way the repositories are set up?

If so can you tell me how to change them to enable the php-ldap modules to be downloaded (the repositories system seems to be non-standard -for Ubuntu)

Try this:
apt-get update
apt-get install php5-ldap

Thanks for your quick reply, however I did this and I still couldn't get the packages.

I did solve the problem...the repository list is in a file
/etc/apt/sources.list.d folder
sources.list wasn't actually configured to look on the gb ubuntu sites.(http://gb.archive.ubuntu...etc...)
I just copied my working ubuntu server settings and it all works now

The default sources.list is configured to pull from ubuntu's main package repository: is just a mirror of the main package repository, so I don't see why it would make a difference, besides being a little faster due to your location.

Anyway, glad to hear all is working.
