Php – Authenticating in PHP using LDAP through Active Directory

active-directoryauthenticationldapphp

I'm looking for a way to authenticate users through LDAP with PHP (with Active Directory being the provider). Ideally, it should be able to run on IIS 7 (adLDAP does it on Apache). Anyone had done anything similar, with success?

  • Edit: I'd prefer a library/class with code that's ready to go… It'd be silly to invent the wheel when someone has already done so.

Importing a whole library seems inefficient when all you need is essentially two lines of code...

$ldap = ldap_connect("ldap.example.com");
if ($bind = ldap_bind($ldap, $_POST['username'], $_POST['password'])) {
  // log them in!
} else {
  // error message
}
