As far as getting up and running on sending commands to your LDAP database, php.net has a good function reference for that. Honestly, if you ever need to know how to do anything in PHP, their offical site is usually the best place to start.
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.ldap.php

As far as LDAP is concerned, documentation for it is known to be sparse and more theoretical than practical. Here is a link for some LDAP basics:
http://quark.humbug.org.au/publications/ldap_tut.html

If you are so inclined, the best book on LDAP so far has been O'Reilly's "LDAP System Administration" by Gerald Carter. It's still more theory than most people care for, but it does do a better job than any other book I've yet come across.

Let me know how it all works out for you. I've been very interested in LDAP as of late myself.
