LDAP Account Manager (LAM) on Redhat 9

Has anyone out there installed LDAP Account Manager (LAM) 0.3 on Redhat 9. I have been trying to do this for a while now and I am running out of anymore ideas.

There seems to be a never ending list of dependencies and the perl modules that I installed caused my web server not to function.

I just want to know if this is possible and if anyone has done it already, I would really really appreciate some help. I am very desperate for a solution now.

RE: LDAP Account Manager (LAM) on Redhat 9

First of all, install the latest Apache2 RPM or better yet, compile and install Apache2 from source code ( (Here is the configuration that I used):

./configure --prefix=/var/www --enable-so --enable-ssl --enable-cgi --enable-speling --enable-rewrite --enable-usertrack --enable-mime-magic

Then compile and install libmcrypt, mcrypt, and mhash (standard compile - ./configure, make, make install):

Then compile and install PHP ( (Here is the configuration that I used):

./configure --with-apxs2=/var/www/bin/apxs --with-mysql --with-mcrypt=/usr/local/bin --enable-debug --with-openssl --with-mhash=/usr/local/lib --disable-cgi --with-gettext --with-ldap --with-zlib

Edit your /var/www/conf/httpd.conf file and add the following:

# Add index.php to your DirectoryIndex line:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

# PHP Syntax Coloring (recommended):
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

Here is a helpful page for understanding the PHP/Apache2 install part:

Create a base.ldif file to initialize your LDAP server (change the dc=domain,dc=org to match your own domain setup you are using):

dn: dc=domain,dc=org
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organization
dc: domain
o: domain
structuralObjectClass: organization

dn: ou=Users,dc=domain,dc=org
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: Users
structuralObjectClass: organizationalUnit

dn: ou=Groups,dc=domain,dc=org
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: Groups
structuralObjectClass: organizationalUnit

dn: ou=Computers,dc=domain,dc=org
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: Computers
structuralObjectClass: organizationalUnit

dn: ou=Domains,dc=domain,dc=org
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: Domains
structuralObjectClass: organizationalUnit

Initialize your LDAP server:

/usr/sbin/slapadd -v -l base.ldif

Check /var/lib/ldap and view the permissions on the .dbb database files you created in the previous step. If the permissions are set to root:root, chown them to ldap:ldap.

Extract LAM ( into your /var/www/htdocs directory. Change the /var/www/htdocs/lam/config files (config.cfg_sample and lam.conf_sample) to config.cfg and lam.conf. Edit lam.conf to match the values you have set in your /etc/openldap/slapd.conf file. Chmod 0755 both lam.conf and config.cfg. Then point your browser to http://localhost/lam and you should see the LAM interface. The test scripts in the /var/www/htdocs/lam/tests directory may be helpful. Point your browser to these scripts for testing your LAM setup. For example: http://localhost/lam/tests/conf-main-test.php.

Good Luck!

Working LAM Configuration

Since I finally got LDAP Account Manager fully working with Fedora Linux Core 1, I thought I would edit my previous post, include my working configuration, and resubmit this information to the forum.

Note for RedHat/Fedora users: Seperate up-to-date RPMs for libmcrypt, mcrypt, mhash, and a mcrypt-enabled PHP package are being compiled and submitted to the Fedora Quality Assurance department. When I find the time and when LAM becomes more stable, I will think about compiling and submitting a LAM RedHat/Fedora RPM.
