Yeah, I noticed that the PECL module itself was unmaintained at this point, but I was hoping that it was functional.

Yes, I'm specifying a password to kadm5_init_with_password.  Please see attached PHP script, which runs under Apache-level authentication.

If I run this from the command line, it does indeed prompt me interactively for a password.  I'm wondering if that's a function of the PECL library itself, or if it's due to something internal to Kerberos that's changed since the PECL module was released.

I guess I'm going to have to learn some more C if I want this to work.  :(
