The problem lies in the message "couldn't check access. No groups
file?". mod_auth_ldap isn't processing the require group directive,
another one of the authentication modules (mod_auth) is trying to parse
the "require group" directive, and because mod_auth isn't set up with a
group file (which you shouldn't have, you're using LDAP), you get the
error message.

I am not sure what the fix is though - go through the examples in the
docs to double check you have included everything you need to include.

httpd v2.1/v2.2 fixes this problem by using "require ldap-group".
