ldap_bind() binds to an LDAP directory with an optional relative distinguished name (RDN) and password. If the relative distinguished name and password are not specified, an anonymous connection is attempted. Some servers require an arbitrary password even for anonymous binding.

if (!($ldapconn = ldap_connect($host)) {
   echo "Error! Could not connect to LDAP host $host\n";

      echo "Error! Could not bind\n";
      echo "Error was: " ldap_error($ldapid);
