John's LDAP Web Interface


Welcome to John's LDAP Web Interface. Out of interest I have developed an LDAP Web Interface (LDAP Web) using Apache, PHP and SSL tools. Myself and a few of my colleagues at Hewlett Packard use this web interface to manipulate Microsoft's Active Directory as it is more user-friendly compared to Adsiedit, LDP and LDIFDE, and also provides a common look and feel. The web interface, as stated, is an LDAP interface with the majority of testing done against Active Directory and Openldap. I have also done basic testing against Novell's eDirectory and Sun's Iplanet directories.

The project summary page is located here.


The LDAP Web Interface code is being released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), version 2. This is the same license used by the Linux kernel.
