The site does not display, results in "504 Gateway Time-out" if the authentication server specified in LdapContrib configuration is not network available whether or not the ldap service is running on that server.

I am not sure if this is an LdapContrib bug or a TWiki bug.

I would hope that if an authentication server is not available, at least the contents of the site would load.

I don't know what I changed to make it start working without the LDAP server being network available, but it is now loading the pages. May be it was the Pattern skin? Don't know. I will investigate.

The reason the homepage did not load initially was because it was making a call to the LDAP to display a list of users. Removing that allowed the page to load. But the another page which called LDAP did not load when the server was not network available and resulted in "504" error.

I am reclassifying this as an LdapContrib bug.
