phpLDAPadmin is an web-based LDAP adminstration interface.


See LAMP for a guide to setting up Apache, MySQL, and PHP.


Install the package phpldapadmin from the official repositories.

Configure PHP

You need to enable the php-ldap extension in PHP by editing /etc/php/php.ini and uncommenting the line


Add the following to the open_basedir line in php.ini:



phpLDAPadmin's configuration file is located at /etc/webapps/phpldapadmin/config.php. It should be usable without making any modifications.

Although not strictly neccessary you can edit config.php and name your server with the line


Copy the Apache configuration file:

# cp /etc/webapps/phpldapadmin/apache.example.conf /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf

And include it in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

# phpldapadmin configuration
Include conf/extra/httpd-phpldapadmin.conf

By default, everyone can see the phpLDAPadmin page, to change this, edit /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 Allow from all by Allow from localhost.

Accessing your phpLDAPadmin installation

Your phpLDAPadmin installation is now complete. Before start using it you need to restart Apache.

You can access your phpLDAPadmin installation by going to http://localhost/phpldapadmin
