I'm having trouble inserting a JPEG file into the jpegphoto attribute (Openldap 1.2.11).

From the documentation I have read I should be storing a base64 value in the jpegphoto attribute. I have managed to insert the photo with an ldap client and then made an LDIF extract to look at the base64 encoding. When I try to insert the jpegphoto with PHP, the base64 encoding is identical (I did an "echo" to print things on the screen) as to what I see with the LDIF extract. When I look at the openldap database I see totally different values than what I expect.

When I insert the jpegphoto with an LDAP client (LDAP Browser/Editor by Jarek Gawor - freeware) I can display the photo with the Netscape browser and I can see the base64 encoding correctly on the slapd server.

Here is the php code excerpt that shows you what I am doing :-

// Get the JPEG file. $AttributeValue is the JPEG file to upload

if ($Str_or_Bin == "binary") {
	if (!$file=fopen($AttributeValue, "r")) {
		print "<h3>Error: Upload of binary file failed</h3>";
		exit;
	}
else {
	$AttributeValue = chunk_split(base64_encode(fread($file,"$AttributeValue_size")));
	fclose($file);
	}
}
.
.
.
.
// Insert JPEG file into LDAP database
// $AttributeValue contains the base64 encoding
// $AttributeName is jpegphoto
<?php
$info[$AttributeName] = $AttributeValue;
// Example of the echo printout after this code
echo "AND KNOW IT IS ".$info[$AttributeName]."<br><br><br>";
@$ds=ldap_connect($Host);
if ($ds) {
	@$r=ldap_bind($ds, $AdminDN, $Password);
	if ($r) {
		@$result = ldap_mod_add($ds, $PersonDN, $info);
		if ($result) {
			print '<h3>Addition Successful</h3>';
.
.
Here is what the 'echo "AND KNOW IT IS ".$info[$AttributeName]."<br><br><br>";' gives me

Is there a bug or am I doing something wrong ??

I've spent days trying to get it right/searching for an answer and I even upgraded from php3.0.14/openldap-1.2.10 so I'd be very grateful for any input.

Thanks & Regards

Closed. See bug #5759 for reason.

Fixed in CVS. There is no need to base64_encode() that 
jpeg-file. Just read it into a variable as it is.

Please check bug #5759 for an example code.
