When the authentication method is set to LDAP, you also need to make sure the [LDAP] section is set up appropriately.


Assuming the settings are correct, you might find it useful to add some debug statements to the authentication process in web/sys/authn/LDAPAuthentication.php to pinpoint exactly where authentication is failing.  This can often give you clues about whether the problem has to do with your LDAP settings or something else (like network security).  One common LDAP problem involves the way OpenLDAP validates security certificates – see http://old.nabble.com/LDAP-td28621491.html for more details.


Depending on how your local LDAP is set up, it is also possible that VuFind’s LDAP implementation won’t map exactly to your local needs.  Hopefully once you have done some debugging, you’ll know more about how to work around any such differences.  Feel free to share your findings and ask more questions as needed!

It's like an user who has account can login and track the book and request for that particular book if it's Checked-out.
The [Authentication] section in our system looks like
method          = LDAP

Is there anything I'd work on.When I try to access with the account I've,it responded me saying "We cannot log you in at this time. Please try again later."

What do you need to use for authentication?  VuFind comes with several different authentication options, and you can select which one it uses in the [Authentication] section of web/conf/config.ini.  If you need to build something custom, you can add a new authentication module to the web/sys/authn directory; if you look at an existing methods, you should have a fairly good model for building your own.

Please let me know if you still have questions -- and sorry if I'm misunderstanding what you need.
