Can PHP get data from active directory?

Posted on 2006-05-23
Last Modified: 2013-12-12
I want to write a program in PHP on an intranet site that would authenticate using the active directory credentials, and  looks at what security group the user is in to determine access rights to certain areas.

Basically I want to create a new group in active directory like 'intranet admins' that will allow certain users into a restricted section on the website.

is this possible?

if so how?

PS - I do not want to use active X (not sure if this is a factor)
