[Phpgroupware-users] More LDAP questions

Like one of the other recent posters, I'm running the Mitel SME Server Linux distribution (formerly e-smith), which uses gdbm. And like others, I'm having LDAP problems.

I'm trying to configure, in the Authentication/Accounts section of the main configuration screen, phpGW to use LDAP for authentication and user accounts. There are several issues from my perspective:

1. If "LDAP accounts context" and "LDAP groups context" are left blank, only the last entry in the LDAP database is displayed. In looking through the mailing list archives, I saw a posting that indicated these two configuration values were required. As, by default, the SME Server has a flat LDAP structure, this seems to be causing a problem.

2. On my test box, I therefore added to the LDAP database, using the LDAP Browser utility, two OUs ("people" and "groups"). I moved all my people entries (just 5 on this box) into the "ou=people" container. I then went back to the configuration screen and added the two entries, including the "ou=" portion. When I go into the "Modify an existing LDAP account store for use with phpGroupWare (for a new install using LDAP accounts)" menu option, I see no user names at all. My messages file shows:

I'm no programmer and can't debug what the ldapmodify.php file is doing here.

3. Another poster stated a belief that LDAP wasn't working in the current 0.9.14 release. However, postings in the archive seem to indicate otherwise. Could someone associated with the project provide a definitive statement on the status of LDAP?

I've been trying to use phpGW ad it looks a really good tool (bugs and incomplete features notwithstanding), and I have a client interested in it for its global address book features (and perhaps time tracking). To me it seems streets ahead of other PHP applications like Twiggi, and it would be a great shame if LDAP support let it down.
