Using SSO (Single Sign On) for admin login

Postby bartgymnast » 7:51pm, Wed 11 Jul, 2012

Hi All,

I have been searching the forum for the following but could not find it.

I am currently using PhP list to send notifications to customers.
I want to integrate PhP list in our lemonldap-ng (SSO) system.

On lemonldap-ng portal an user logs in and from their he/she can access the applications that he/she has access to.
This application opens up directly without having to re-login into that application.

PhP list code is pretty big and a bit messy for an not-so experienced php coder like myself, so I am searching for a needly in a haystack.

Has anyone been able to make this work, and what parts of the PhP list code have you changed to make this work?
phpList newbie

See this section in config.php that explains how to provide alternative authentication methods
# admin authentication module.
# to validate the login for an administrator, you can define your own authentication module
# this is not finished yet, so don't use it unless you're happy to play around with it
# if you have modules to contribute, open a tracker issue on
# the default module is, which you can find in the "auth" subdirectory of the
# admin directory. It will tell you the functions that need to be defined for phplist to
# retrieve it's information.
# phplist will look for a file in that directory, or you can enter the full path to the file

# eg
#$admin_auth_module = '';

# or
#$admin_auth_module = '/usr/local/etc/';
