    Meeting Room Booking System - examples config inside!

    Some may or may not know this system. But this is a great Room booking system. Especially for schools.

    Most schools have microsoft Active directory systems. This software can be a right pain in the arse to get to work.

    Fortunately I have it working!

    Two config files are the main things to mess around with are

    'config.inc.php' and 'auth_ldap.inc'

    snapshot of 'config.inc.php'

    ###############################################
    # Authentication settings - read AUTHENTICATION
    ###############################################
    $auth["session"] = "php"; # How to get and keep the user ID. One of
    # "http" "php" "cookie" "ip" "host" "nt" "omni"
    # "remote_user"
    $auth["type"] = "ldap"; # How to validate the user/password. One of "none"
    # "config" "db" "db_ext" "pop3" "imap" "ldap" "nis"
    # "nw" "ext".

    # Cookie path override. If this value is set it will be used by the
    # 'php' and 'cookie' session schemes to override the default behaviour
    # of automatically determining the cookie path to use
    $cookie_path_override = '';

    # The list of administrators (can modify other peoples settings)
    $auth["admin"][] = "127.0.0.1"; # localhost IP address. Useful with IP sessions.
    $auth["admin"][] = "administrator";
    $auth["admin"][] = "db"; <-----username from AD

    #$auth["admin"][] = "10.0.0.1";
    #$auth["admin"][] = "10.0.0.2";
    #$auth["admin"][] = "10.0.0.3";

    # 'session_http' configuration settings
    $auth["realm"] = "mrbs";


    # 'auth_ldap' configuration settings
    # Where is the LDAP server
    $ldap_host = "mulpdc.mulberry.local";
    # If you have a non-standard LDAP port, you can define it here
    $ldap_port = 389;
    # If you want to use LDAP v3, change the following to true
    $ldap_v3 = true;
    # If you want to use TLS, change following to true
    $ldap_tls = false;
    # LDAP base distinguish name
    # See AUTHENTICATION for details of how check against multiple base dn's
    $ldap_base_dn = "ou=Admin,dc=mulberry,dc=local";
    $ldap_base_dn = "ou=SubAdmin,dc=mulberry,dc=local";
    $ldap_base_dn = "ou=Staff,ou=Users,ou=Mulberry,dc=mulberry,dc=local";
    $account_suffix = "@mulberry.local";
    # Attribute within the base dn that contains the username
    $ldap_user_attrib = "sAMAccountName";


    # 'auth_ldap' extra configuration for ldap configuration of who can use
    # the system
    # If it's set, the $ldap_filter will be combined with the value of
    # $ldap_user_attrib like this:
    # (&($ldap_user_attrib=username)($ldap_filter))
    # After binding to check the password, this check is used to see that
    # they are a valid user of mrbs.
    #$ldap_filter = "mrbsuser=y";

    see attached files for more detailed analysis

    goto http://mrbs.sourceforge.net/docs.html for more info

    The auth_ldap.inc needs to be modified for AD usage (see attached file)

    Working on MRBS 1.2.5

    If you need any help give me a buzz

    Re: Meeting Room Booking System - examples config inside!

    Theres a few posts on this one its a great system. Webman has built his own as well which is available. I also posted instructions on how to modify it so you can set the maximum number of days ahead they can book. Not sure if that a standard feature in the newer versions.

    That's fine, I'm not forcing anybody to use it. It's useful for us and if it helps anybody else it's a bonus
