Sorry you got it wrong, PHP can only do a simple bind, it cannot
handle strong binds, and, no sasl is required for strong
PHP-4.2 and above can handle the function ldap_start_tls. If
your webmail application implements this function you might at least
encrypt your session.

Is the distinguished name correct?
check twice :-)
Does the DN 'uid=test,dc=srcs,dc=org' exist on your system?

No, the error says 'Invalid credentials', that is, either the DN does not
exist or is misspelled, or the password is incorrect.
