It’s been over a year since I wrote the first version of the CakePHP LdapAuth & Ldap Datasource. What I’ve learned over the last year is that a simple component & datasource is not enough and it should really be a full plugin. So I started working on Idbroker.

Everybody Plays Guitar, few play well! WordPress or WP as I call it went viral long ago, with 54% or all CMS systems using WP it’s obvious it’s not a fad.  But with that many people using the code, you also have lots of people now vulnerable to a whole slew of attacks.  Because WordPress is so easy to use, many...

While my preference is WordPress, that is not the only tool in my arsenal.  MelloBoy had needs that were better facilitated by Joomla CMS system.  The customer preferred the interface and found the plugins available better suited their needs. See Site http://MelloBoy.com Share on Facebook

I love using Mac, as a so called IT professional it’s the most professional improvement to come UNIX in over a decade.  I especially like to use it for work,  The problem isall of the systems they use at my company rely on CAC authentication.  More specificaly it’s all been geared towards Windows & CAC.  Don’t get me wrong Common...

There are two schools of thought for how to clone drives under unix. The quick and dirty method is via the unix command dd. This is a bit for bit copy tool So it can even copy master boot records and partition tables. But it also copys empty space and kinda requires the drives be identical. Since it’s rare to...

So I was looking for a way to authenticate against LDAP with cake but I’ve found that it doesn’t support it by default. I found one that checks the auth against ldap then creates a local mysql account. This also didn’t use a actual ldap data sourc e either, it just handeled it’s own ldap connection. After I read through...
