I have a question about WordPress and LDAP on a Unix platform, is the appropriate place for that Server Fault or here?

  • What's the actual Q? We could likely take it here, assuming it's enough about Linux & Unix.

  • The general question is in the title. I'm just offering my specific question as an example of something I'm unsure of as a result. I just didn't know where to post it so I did a general meta question.

    Yeah I know, but answering your Q is a bit like asking if a turning test is accurate enough. I need to test it with the actual Q. My $0.02 is if you ask it we can probably answer it. The help is pretty clear (an intentionally vague) on this subject as well 8-) on-topic vs. off-topic

  • I'll add this and stop bugging you, on boarder-line questions like this I'll often leave it to the OP to make the call. Caleb had asked his Q on SF but then posted the URL in our chat to get us to look at it. So you might want to use the same tactic here.

There isn't, exactly. Server Fault is:

a site for system and network administrators needing expert answers related to managing computer systems in a professional capacity.

while we're:

for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.

so naturally there's lots of overlap. If it belongs on both you can pick which one you think you'll get a better answer on. In this case, I wouldn't expect WordPress to be particularly sysadmin-oriented, but SF has quite a few questions about it, and certainly LDAP is on-topic there. Setting up any app on Unix is likely to be on-topic for us, so your question is probably fine on either site
