Re: Mysql as a backend for LDAP

Yes, but you don't want to. Why does everyone keep thinking using an
RDBMS as a backend to LDAP is a good idea? And mysql no less... I
might be able to understand Oracle, DB2, etc... If you don't understand
why this is a terrible idea please go read the FAQ entry about this.
The back-sql is to enable LDAP clients to access information stored in
an RDBMS system either by a legacy application or some type of CRM (at
least as I understand it).
>Or Is it possible with PHP to alter openldap values ??
?? Yes. See http://www.php.net/ldap
