We are going to use our own openid server for various projects, it was fairly easy to install at then end.
Because sources are diffused on the net, here is a all-in-one package you’ll just need to put on your webhost to start your server:
Update: OpenId-Server now on Github.com
In the package, you need to edit some configuration in web/config.php:
/** * The administrator's email address. You may leave this empty if you * wish. If empty, the "Contact (email address)" message will not * appear on every page footer. */ define('SITE_ADMIN_EMAIL', "email@example.com"); /** * Set these values for administrative access. This account will be * able to create and remove accounts from the auth backend. This * username will not be permitted to use an OpenID. The password MUST * be an MD5 hexadecimal hash of the password you want to use. * Example: * * define('ADMIN_PASSWORD_MD5', '21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3'); * */ define('ADMIN_USERNAME', 'admin'); define('ADMIN_PASSWORD_MD5', '');
/** * Storage backend to use. Currently the only choice is "MYSQL". See * storage.php for storage backend implementations. Parameters for * connecting to the storage backend. See storage.php if you want to * create your own backend. */ define('STORAGE_BACKEND', 'MYSQL'); global $storage_parameters; $storage_parameters = array('username' => 'openid', 'password' => '', 'database' => 'php_openid_server', 'hostspec' => 'localhost');
There are more options you can change in config.php, feel free to experiment 🙂
Link to HTTP server
You need to tell to your server to access OpenID server in the ‘web‘ directory.
Here is how it works on my webhost:
ln -sf ~/openid/web/ ~/public_html/openid/
Now you can access my OpenID server on http://openid.alexgirard.com
