I need to write PHP code to connect to active directory using LDAP and perform several reads. The parameters that will be read are: user name, office/building address, email, phone, and department, The code will be a few PHP functions. The problem is that active directory is not installed yet. The code will be tested with another LDAP server.
Does active directory have the same syntax as other LDAP directories (cn = user name, and so on)? Is it safe to write the code and test it with another LDAP server?
