This has nothing to with your LDAP Server. It's part of phpGW. YOu can
define this options on the setup pages.
http://yourwebserver/phpgroupware/setup/index.php. Click the second button
from above. On this page you can define this values.

ldap_context: where to search for accounts
ldap_group_contect: where to search for groups(ex:

No need to change the code until now! :)

Don't touch the code! :)

It's a function provided from php. Try grep ldap_search mod_php4. :) This is
the location where you could find it. ldap_search is a function that does
mostly the the same like the standalone binary ldapsearch. But ldap_search
does it from inside PHP.

More information about this and other ldap function can be found unter this
address .
