I'm trying to add in the External Authentication module specifically for LDAP Active Directory.

I've followed through the instructions however I'm getting this error:

Fatal error: Declaration of ExternalAuthenticator::authenticate() must be compatible with that of Authenticator::authenticate() in /webdata/sites/staff/auth_external/code/ExternalAuthenticator.php on line 458

Does anyone know why I would get this?
