Your AuthLDAPURL is not complete. You need to stretch it all the way
out, including specifying what value to search for and do authentication
against.

Here is just the LDAP portion of my configuration :
AuthType Basic
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthLDAPURL
ldap://my.domain.int:3268/dc=my,dc=domain,dc=int?sAMAccountName??(objectClass=*)
AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=ldap_user,OU=CS Users,OU=CS,DC=my,DC=domain,DC=int"
AuthLDAPBindPassword passwd_without_quotes_or_spaces

Note - I am using my global catalog port rather than the LDAP port
because there is a separate issue with references in LDAP that affects me.

Frank
