Requirements for AuthPAM
AuthPAMOld has a small requirement that must be met in order to work, you need pam_auth php module. I've seen it's on some Linux distributions but not on all.
After compilling and installing the module as stated in it's documentation you have to create a PAM service for Tiki (normally at /etc/pam.d).
Then just jump onto Tikiwiki and setup PAM there.
Take care of file permissions, remember that php runs with apache privileges, normally a normal user account like www-data or so. If you plan to use PAM
I'd be glad of any suggestions on that point
With a default PAM service any account will be granted (try user: nobody ) so here are a few things to take care about that:
I recomend you to make use of pam_require module to require a specific group to be in for the user. Also you can take a look at PAM Modules at kernel.org to refine a bit more your pam service for tiki.
Also take note that pam only receive a user/pass pair and checks it, it relays on your web server settings to handle a secure transaction of that pair from the browser to the server, I recommend SSL
Thanks damian for advising me that two things.
