Phpldapadmin problem

I'm new on Phpldapadmin, I just downloaded the latest release phpldapadmin-php5 1.0.1, I could following there step to configure the config.php file, after configure the config.php I can't entry to Phpldapadmin, the webpage showing as following messages:

You need to configure phpLDAPadmin. Edit the file "/ftp/openldap/pla/config/config.php" to do so. An example config file is provided in "/ftp/openldap/pla/config/config.php.example".

Below is what I edited in config.php :

$ldapservers = new LDAPServers;

/* A convenient name that will appear in the tree viewer and throughout
phpLDAPadmin to identify this LDAP server to users. */
$ldapservers->SetValue($i,'server','name','MY LDAP Server');

/* Examples:
(Unix socket at /usr/local/var/run/ldap) */

/* The port your LDAP server listens on (no quotes). 389 is standard. */

/* Array of base DNs of your LDAP server. Leave this blank to have phpLDAPadmin
auto-detect it for you. */

/* Three options for auth_type:
1. 'cookie': you will login via a web form, and a client-side cookie will
store your login dn and password.
2. 'session': same as cookie but your login dn and password are stored on the
web server in a persistent session variable.
3. 'config': specify your login dn and password here in this config file. No
login will be required to use phpLDAPadmin for this server.

Choose wisely to protect your authentication information appropriately for
your situation. If you choose 'cookie', your cookie contents will be
encrypted using blowfish and the secret your specify above as
session['blowfish']. */

/* The DN of the user for phpLDAPadmin to bind with. For anonymous binds or
'cookie' or 'session' auth_types, LEAVE THE LOGIN_DN AND LOGIN_PASS BLANK. If
you specify a login_attr in conjunction with a cookie or session auth_type,
then you can also specify the login_dn/login_pass here for searching the
directory for users (ie, if your LDAP server does not allow anonymous binds. */
// $ldapservers->SetValue($i,'login','dn','');

/* Your LDAP password. If you specified an empty login_dn above, this MUST also
be blank. */
// $ldapservers->SetValue($i,'login','pass','');

/* Use TLS (Transport Layer Security) to connect to the LDAP server. */
// $ldapservers->SetValue($i,'server','tls',false);

Thank !

What happens if you comment out

Do you have Manager set up as the LDAP admin user? Try the above and logging in as Manager if that is the case
