ldap_bind -- Bind to LDAP directory

Description

bool ldap_bind ( resource link_identifier [, string bind_rdn [, string bind_password]] )

Binds to the LDAP directory with specified RDN and password. Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

ldap_bind() does a bind operation on the directory. bind_rdn and bind_password are optional. If not specified, anonymous bind is attempted.

Example 1. Using LDAP Bind

<?php

// using ldap bind
$ldaprdn  = 'uname';     // ldap rdn or dn
$ldappass = 'password';  // associated password

// connect to ldap server
$ldapconn = ldap_connect("ldap.example.com")
    or die(
"Could not connect to LDAP server.");

if (
$ldapconn) {

    
// binding to ldap server
    
$ldapbind = ldap_bind($ldapconn, $ldaprdn, $ldappass);

    
// verify binding
    
if ($ldapbind) {
        echo
"LDAP bind successful...";
    } else {
        echo
"LDAP bind failed...";
    }
        
}

?>

Example 2. Using LDAP Bind Anonymously

<?php

//using ldap bind anonymously

// connect to ldap server
$ldapconn = ldap_connect("ldap.example.com")
    or die(
"Could not connect to LDAP server.");

if (
$ldapconn) {

    
// binding anonymously
    
$ldapbind = ldap_bind($ldapconn);

    if (
$ldapbind) {
        echo
"LDAP bind anonymous successful...";
    } else {
        echo
"LDAP bind anonymous failed...";
    }

}
    
?>
