Hi group

I'm trying to hook up my simple app to Active Directory. I'm following
instructions posted on the website.

Mainly http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowtoAuthe...
and now also http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/ActiveLDAP.

The two instructions seem to differ a little on how to configure
(environment.rb). Both instructions break my app with an internal server
error. I attached the apache error below.



As I am fairly new to Ruby on Rails the error message `const_missing':
uninitialized constant Base (NameError) does not give me any clues on
how to fix the configuration.



I am using Ruby 1.8.2, Rails 0.14.2, Ruby-activeldap-0.5.9 and XAMPP150.




Any help or pointers you can give me will be greatly appreciated.



Onno
