attempted to upgrade confluence to 5.7.5 and trying to connect to via LDAP, is it still a confuration file such as atlassian-user.xml? I'm not using a certificate so there's no https or ssl.

I've configured LDAP using OpenLDAP now and have a successful connection test but I can't login with my credentials that would be loaded from the domain.

more details

Name                          Delegated LDAP Authentication Directory Type       
OpenLDAP                 Hostname              directory.csuchico.edu
Port                            636 for ssl no longer accepts 389
Username                  uid=confluence_svc,ou=services,ou=auth,dc=csuchico,dc=edu

Base DN                    ou=services,ou=auth,dc=csuchico,dc=edu
User Name Attribute   cn=users

 the message in the log file, atlassian-confluence.log is that the user doesn't have permissions.

Hi Kirk,

The configuration file such as atlassian-user.xml is not longer user after Confluence 4.x and above. All the LDAP intergration is not configured in the UI level. You can reconfigure your LDAP via General Configuration >> User Directories after the upgrade.  Here's a documentation  https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Connecting+to+an+LDAP+Directory just for your references. 

Regards,
Jing Hwa
