Just a quick update - I dug into the slapd.conf and linked files and found they use The basedn starting with uid=root (not diradmin) but I have no idea how to find the secret / password

> Hello All,

> $ldap_starttls = false;
> $ldap_binddn = "uid=diradmin,cn=users,dc=servername,dc=network,dc=lan";
> $ldap_bindpw = "password";
> $ldap_base = "cn=users,dc=servername,dc=network,dc=lan";
> $ldap_login_attribute = "uid";
> $ldap_fullname_attribute = "cn";
> $ldap_filter = "(&(objectClass=person)($ldap_login_attribute={login}))";
