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.



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.


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


Optional configuration

phpLDAPadmin's configuration file is located at /etc/webapps/phpldapadmin/config.php. If you have a local LDAP server, it should be usable without making any modifications.

If your LDAP server is not on the localhost, uncomment and edit the following line:


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

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

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
