I need to have php enabled with ldap so I can use a WordPress Plugin to authenticate to Active Directory. I have read that php has to be compiled with ldap support. But I have also found php-ldap packages that are supposed to add ldap support to php. So do I really need to compile php, or can I install a php package and then install one of the php-ldap packages like php-ldap-5.2.5-7.fc9.i386.rpm?
I ask becasue I don't know much about compiling php.
