Hello All

I would like to know what configuration is needed to configure NGINX on
windows to use LDAP.

My nginx.conf looks like below but am not able to start the nginx service. I
have added the 'ldap_server ProdLDAP ' section under http and 2 other
paramaters named 'auth_ldap_xxx'  under server sectiob. By removing these
ldap parametes, nginx service starts without any issues.

worker_processes  1;
pid        logs/;
events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request"
                      '$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
                      '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

    log_format timing '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local]  '
        '"$request" $status $body_bytes_sent $request_length "$ssl_protocol"
"$ssl_cipher" '
        '$request_time $pipe $gzip_ratio "$upstream_cache_status"
"$upstream_addr" $upstream_status $upstream_response_time $connection';

    sendfile        on;

    keepalive_timeout  65;
	ldap_server ProdLDAP {
        binddn "svcaccount";
        binddn_passwd password;
        group_attribute uniquemember;
        group_attribute_is_dn on;
        require valid_user;

    server {
        listen       51000;
        server_name  localhost;
        auth_ldap "Forbidden";
        auth_ldap_servers ProdLDAP;
        location / {
            root   html;
            index  index.html index.htm;
		location /ProdLogs {
           autoindex on;
           default_type  text/plain;

        error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
        location = /50x.html {
            root   html;
