There is no support for LDAP referral in PHP 4.
It's a big problem, because it's not possible to add data in the LDAP Database because the local database is in read only. Only the the
master (referral) database is writable.
I writed a little function which call "ldap_set_rebind_proc()" but it's used
for all the LDAP link-id and it's not really a solution. Is it possible for you to add this type of function ?
Or may i have help for write this one ?

					Greets, Yannick.

If you use the latest snapshot or the soon to be released
4.0.5 (or release candidate) and OpenLDAP 2.x.x API, you
can tell it not to follow referrals, parse the referral
yourself and connect to the master server. I haven't
added all the documentation yet, but something like this
would catch a referral:

ldap_set_option($ds, LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS, 0);
$sr=ldap_search($ds,"", "cn=inga cecilie*");
if (ldap_parse_result($ds, $sr, $rescode, $matcheddn,                              $errmsg, $referrals)) {
    echo "Result code: $rescode\nMatched DN:                          $matcheddn\nError msg: $errmsg\n";
    echo "Referrals: ", implode("\n\t", $referrals), "\n";
} else {
    echo "Error parsing result!\n";

Will this suffice?

No feedback and should be fixed now.
