PHP needs the php-ldap extension to work with [http://phpldapadmin.sourceforge.net/ phpLDAPadmin]
 
 
<pre>
 
pacman -S php-ldap
 
</pre>
 
 
then edit {{Filename|/etc/php/php.ini}} and uncomment the line
 
 
<pre>
 
;extension=ldap.so
 
</pre>
 
 
by removing the ";" so it will look like this
 
 
<pre>
 
extension=ldap.so
 
</pre>
 
 
Now add
 
 
<pre>
 
:/usr/share/webapps/phpldapadmin/lib/
 
</pre>
 
 
to the "open_basedir" line.

phpLDAPadmin comes with a usable configuration file located at:

Copy the example Apache configuration file to your Apache configuration directory:

# cp /etc/webapps/phpldapadmin/apache.example.conf /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf
/etc/webapps/phpldapadmin/config.php
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Although not strictly neccessary you can edit {{Filename|config.php}} and name your server with the line
+
 
+
<pre>
+
$servers->setValue('server','name','the_name_you_want');
+
</pre>
+
 
+
phpLDAPadmin now installs to {{Filename|/usr/share/webapps}}.  This means some changes to the configuration are required.

Copy the configuration file as follows:

+
<pre>
+
sudo cp /etc/webapps/phpldapadmin/apache.example.conf /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf
+
</pre>
+
 
+
It should look like this:

<pre>

  Alias /phpldapadmin "/usr/share/webapps/phpldapadmin"
+
  <Directory "/usr/share/webapps/phpldapadmin">

</pre>
+
 
+
''NOTE'' If you are getting 403 errors, make sure the A is correct case (phpldapadmin instead of phpldapAdmin)
+
 
+
Add the following lines to {{Filename|/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf}}:

+
And include it in {{ic|/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf}}:
# phpldapadmin configuration
+
# phpLDAPadmin configuration
Include conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf
+
Include conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf
</pre>
+
  
Edit {{Filename|/usr/share/webapps/phpldapadmin/.htaccess}} and comment out deny from all, otherwise you will receive a 403 access denied error. It should look like this:
+
By default, everyone can see the phpLDAPadmin page, to change this, edit {{ic|/etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf}} to your liking. For example, if you only want to be able to access it from the same machine, replace {{ic|Allow from all}} by {{ic|Allow from localhost}}.

$servers->setValue('server','host','127.0.0.1');

Although not strictly necessary you can name your server by editing the following line:

$servers->setValue('server','name','My LDAP server');
