With most online software, when you login a session is created and a cookie is stored on your computer. The ideal goal is that you login into WordPress, and it then automatically logs you into webmail, webcalendar, FAQmaster, coppermine, etc... To accomplish this, each software would need to create its own cookie for the user, so the user upon logging in once would have 5+ cookies. To make things a lot easier, you would do something similar with account registrations. For example, if they register in WordPress, then it should automatically register them in webcalendar, FAQmaster, Coppermine, etc...
This thread on phpBB talks about phpBB and LDAP. They mention that they were facing a problem with auto logging the users in once they logging into the main account:
With what you are describing I am going to say it cannot be done. I hate to say this in the IT world however as there is almost always a solution. To rephrase this, most likely, the task that you are trying to accomplish is going to be extremely difficult.
I'd be very curious to know if you got something like this setup easily how it was down. In the past I've created a script to automatically log one user into two different applications. Some aspects of the task are easy, but then there are other items such as security that really need to be thought out.
Which directory server should be used for the greatest number of services?
All files should go within your public_html folder. You don't have too many options regarding the directory on the server. If you're referring to Active Directory, that is a Windows feature that is not available on our Linux platforms.
I hope I've helped a little, but be sure to let me know if you have further questions.
