I have a problem, er rather no. A friend of mine has this problem. See him there? See how sad and frustrated he is with his own inability. I, er... He can't make it work. You know what I mean? I mean he tries, he REALLY tries but nothing. No, er success. Yeah. No success. It's hard when someone is there telling you to perform and you've got nothing, nada zip. I'm ready to pull out all my severely tousled locks. I mean he is. Obviously. Alright, it's me. How humiliating.
As many of you have guessed I've been trying to get an open source Wordpress Windows active directory integration plug-in to work against my AD 2008 LDAP server. Tell me you've been there. What a freaking nightmare.
"Peter, can you install a new Wordpress blog for our director?"
"Sure thing. That's pretty simple actually"
"There are also a FEW plug-ins that need adding."
"OK. Usually not a big deal."
"Oh, and we need username integration."
And so the nightmare began. Someone once described insanity as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result" They're wrong. I do the same thing over and over and GET different results hourly! If that is the accepted definition of insanity, then all computer people are nuts. Ha ha. Have your little snicker.
I propose a new definition. Insanity is doing an Internet web search for 'Active Directory Integration' and believing that one of the 1,830,000 results might actually hold the answer to your stupid problem.
It's been 1 week since I started trying to resolve this.
"Peter. How's it going?"
"HA! HA HAHA!
"Oh yeah! Any day now..."
Seriously I'm losing my marbles here....At least I'm in good shape with my well rounded exercises in complete futility.
