Sub Container users can't login after iFolder Upgrade to 2.1.3

Hello,

We recently upgraded our iFolder to V2.1.3. After the upgrade the admin
cannot login to the iFolder Admin page. We were able to get the admin to
login properly by editing our existing httpd_ifolder_nw.conf entry shown
below:

Our original entry: LdapLoginDnContext "O=ORG;ou=STAFF,o=ORG;ou=LAB,o=ORG"
(note: sample container names only).
Our new entry: LdapLoginDnContext "O=ORG"

With this new entry, only the admin can login. Our users in sub-containers
are not searched. If we put the original entry back, even the admin can't
login to the admin page. Seems that there is a big difference between V1
and V2.1.3 when it comes to the setting for allowing sub-container users.

Can someone please direct us to this setting that we seem to be missing?

Thanks.
Jim

From 1.x? (Or so you say) If so the option to search subcontainers is
in the idoler admin interface.

You are welcome. I assume you understood my post, despite the typos 😉

Modifying User Contexts for the User LDAP Server

For each iFolder server, you must specify the contexts where you want
an iFolder server to search for User objects during the user
authentication process.

If you are not logged in, go to the iFolder Management Console, click
Global Settings, enter your administrator username and password, then
click login. For details, see Logging In to the iFolder Management
Console.

Click Global Settings > User LDAPs.

The User LDAPs page lists the existing LDAP servers you have identified
to iFolder.

Click the LDAP server that you want to modify.

Do one of the following:

Add Contexts: Click Add. Select the context. To specify that iFolder
should search the subcontainers of the context, check the Search
Subcontainers check box. Click OK.
