I installed openldap 2.4.16 on my suse server but when running ldapsearch from openldap, it couldn't contact ldap server over port 636 but when running ldapsearch that came with the suse installation, i can do the same search over port 636 successfully. The error I receive when running ldap search from openldap is
Can't contact ldap server (-1).
Below is how openldap is configure
I install openssl with
and openldap with
./configure --prefix=/path/to/install/ldap/in --enable-ldap --disable-slapd --with-tls
I guess you have wrong settings in ldap.conf. According to your openldap installation, it should be in /path/to/install/ldap/in/etc/ldap.conf.
You might copy the working ldap.conf from Suse's openldap installation.
May I ask, why you have installed openldap from source since you have a working openldap package that came with your distro?
If you want to compile php with ldap support you'll need the openldap header files and libraries that can be found in a different package, usually named by adding a "-devel" at the package name. Searching a little, it looks like Suse's package name is openldap2-devel. Find the one that's for your installed openldap package, install it and hopefully you will be able to compile php with ldap support.
Regarding ldapsearch, what is the exact command options you're using?
When running with -d1 option, it say
result: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
and when running it with -Z or -ZZ, it gives the following message:
ldapsearch: not compiled with TLS support
I thought i compile ldap with TLS support when adding --with-tls. is there something else i'm missing?
Also tried recompiling with the same command and half way, i see this:
checking openssl/ssl.h usability... yes
checking openssl/ssl.h presence... yes
checking for openssl/ssl.h... yes
checking for SSL_library_init in -lssl... no
checking for ssl3_accept in -lssl... no
checking gnutls/gnutls.h usability... no
checking gnutls/gnutls.h presence... no
checking gnutls/gnutls.h... no
Could not locate TLS/SSL Package
TLS data protection no supported!
Before running ./configure, run "make distclean" or "make clean", to remove files created from previous tries.
Or you can try just to add the openssl-devel package using your package manager, so the openldap ./configure script will your distro's openssl, unless there is a good reason to use openssl compiled from source.
