ldap_add -- Add entries to LDAP directory


bool ldap_add ( resource link_identifier, string dn, array entry )

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

The ldap_add() function is used to add entries in the LDAP directory. The DN of the entry to be added is specified by dn. Array entry specifies the information about the entry. The values in the entries are indexed by individual attributes. In case of multiple values for an attribute, they are indexed using integers starting with 0.

$entree["attribut1"] = "value";
$entree["attribut2"][0] = "value1";
$entree["attribut2"][1] = "value2";

Example 1. Complete example with authenticated bind

$ds=ldap_connect("localhost");  // assuming the LDAP server is on this host

if ($ds) {
    // bind with appropriate dn to give update access
    $r=ldap_bind($ds, "cn=root, o=My Company, c=US", "secret");

    // prepare data
    $info["cn"]="John Jones";

    // add data to directory
    $r=ldap_add($ds, "cn=John Jones, o=My Company, c=US", $info);

} else {
    echo "Unable to connect to LDAP server"; 

Note: This function is binary-safe.
