In apache 2.0, mod_auth_ldap is not a seperate (third party) module, but part 
of the main distribution. (See

Is this list a 1.3.x list or do people generally ask questions about 2.0 too??

Me too - PHP_AUTH_USER and PHP_AUTH_PW. They give the username and the 
password of the authenticated user.

However, AUTHENTICATE_UID is something I never heard of and if I google, no 
results. Strange.

And I am looking for something like PHP_AUTH_DN, that would give me the DN of 
the authenticaterd user. (It's not there now!)

I'll try that...

With phpinfo() I do get the same
as expected.

I am not getting any other values from mod_auth_ldap anywhere from php_info().

Thanks for your help !
