When trying to bind to an ldap server over ssl, you need a file called "ldap.conf" in the directory "C:\openldap\sysconf" with a few options in it (at least on Windows, Linux is somewhere in /etc.) In the past (php 5.4 etc.) this worked wonderfully, with php checking that directory, loading the file, and connecting to the server just fine. In php 5.5.3 however, this is completely broken. I used Process Monitor to check where it was searching for ldap.conf and it seems to be searching as such: "G:\Documents\Projects\ProjectName\%SYSCONFDIR%\ldap.conf" (the ProjectName directory being where the currently executing script is located.) I checked and php 5.4.18 checks in the correct directory: "C:\openldap\sysconf\ldap.conf"

Test script:
$host = 'ldaps://server01';
$port = 636;
$rdn = 'CN=Jeff Smith,CN=users,DC=fabrikam,DC=com';
$pwd = 'password';
if(($conn = @ldap_connect($host, $port)) != FALSE){
	ldap_set_option($conn, LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION, 3);
	ldap_set_option($conn, LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS, 0);
	// bind to ldap connection
	if(($r = @ldap_bind($conn, $rdn, $pwd)) != FALSE){
		echo("Successfully connected to LDAP.\n");
		echo("Error: Failed to bind to LDAP.\n"); // this happens
		$conn = null;
}else echo("Error: Failed to connect to LDAP.\n");

Expected result:
Script should bind to ldap server over ssl (ldaps://) and report success.

Actual result:
Script fails to bind to ldap server over ssl.

Please test the builds from here (if possible both x64 and x86), 
they should have correct compiled in path.

I tested both the x86 and x64 builds of the php_ldap (threadsafe) extension and they both seem to work as intended, checking the "C:\openldap\sysconf\ldap.conf" file for configuraton parameters before successfully connecting to the ldap server over ssl.

Thanks for testing. Please use that DLLs with 5.5.3, the regular fix will come 
into the next release. In the mean time the fix can be checked in the 5.5 or 
master snapshots (check in a 
couple of days if interested).
