For further help please click on the Troubleshooting tab where you can find detailed description for each configuration.

I am locked out of my account and can’t login with either my WordPress credentials or LDAP credentials. What should I do?

Firstly, please check if the user you are trying to login with exists in your WordPress. To unlock yourself, rename ldap-login-for-intranet-sites plugin name. You will be able to login with your WordPress credentials. After logging in, rename the plugin back to ldap-login-for-intranet-sites. If the problem persists, activate, deactivate and again activate the plugin.

Awesome Support

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to Kalpesh. A couple of weeks ago I purchased the LDAP/AD Login for Intranet Sites plugin to get LDAP working on my WP install. Kalpesh and I worked with my WP host to try and configure the plugin to work over an encrypted port. However, due to security policies on the host end, it looked like the plugin would not work. Looking as if I would need to find a new plulgin, Kalpesh thought of an alternative solution to setup LDAP using a different Miniorange plugin, LDAP/AD Login for Cloud.

Just want to say thanks again to Kalpesh for getting the LDAP functionality working on my WP install. It is very much appreciated.

Excellent support

Me han solucionado todas mis dudas y siempre me han atendido sin ningĂșn problema!!
5 estrellas para este plug-in sin dudarlo!

Great plugin

This is a very powerful and flexible system for LDAP authentication. We purchased the premium package and got exceptional customer service with a specific customization. Great job!

Great Support!

I made a mistake in the installation of the plugin and the support was AMAZING helping me with issues that were nothing to do with the plugin it self. Don’t hesitate contacting them as they are quick, polite and efficient! 5*


This plug-in is very easy to get setup and works exactly as advertised. I had to contact support for a small problem with my license key and they were also terrific. Top notch company!

Great support good plugin!

This was first plugin that I installed for LDAP/AD login authentication. At first I had some issues with setting it but I didn’t read small letters and because of that my configuration was wrong. Their support/helpdesk jumped in solved all my problems. Gladly recommend this plugin for LDAP/AD login.
P.S. I will seriously consider of upgrading to premium version
