Performs a search on an LDAP directory using the specified filter, with a scope of the entire subtree of the base distinguished name (DN). The optional arguments control searching parameters. If no match is found, the function returns FALSE. If your base is this:"dc=foo,dc=com" the function would search these entries:"ou=vendors,dc=foo,dc=com","sn=123456789,type=printers, ou=machines, department=marketing,dc=foo,dc=com"

and so on.


PHP Version: 3+, 4+


Example 656. Search a directory for *smith*

$filter = "smith";
$result = ldap_search($ldapconn, "dc=foo,dc=com", "cn=*$filter*");
