I couldn't get ldap_bind to work on an ldaps connection until I followed some instructions about creating an ldap.conf file.  I don't see these instructions anywhere on the php site.  Maybe they're on the OpenLDAP site, but I thought it would be useful to have here as well.  Credit goes to a dude known as 'LRM', and I found my solution here: http://lists.horde.org/archives/sork/Week-of-Mon-20040503/001578.html

My setup is XAMPP on Win XP.
###### ApacheFriends XAMPP (basic package) version 1.6.3a ######

  + Apache 2.2.4
  + MySQL 5.0.45
  + PHP 5.2.3 + PHP 4.4.7 + PEAR
  + PHP-Switch win32 1.0 (please use the "php-switch.bat")
  + XAMPP Control Version 2.5 from www.nat32.com   
  + XAMPP Security 1.0   
  + SQLite 2.8.15
  + OpenSSL 0.9.8e
  + phpMyAdmin 2.10.3
  + ADOdb 4.95
  + Mercury Mail Transport System v4.01b
  + FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.23
  + Webalizer 2.01-10
  + Zend Optimizer 3.3.0
  + eAccelerator for PHP 5.2.3  (comment out in the php.ini)

1. create C:\OpenLDAP\sysconf\ldap.conf (Yes, it MUST be this path because it's hard-coded in the dll)
2. put this line at the top:


3. Save, stop/start apache.

The reason is, I think, because it doesn't understand the certificate, so this directive tells it to not bother checking it.  I guess that could be unsafe in some cases, but in my case I'm confident with the server I'm connecting to.

My connection code was as follows (nothing new here, I don't think):

= @ldap_connect('ldaps://the.ldap.server', 636);
ldap_set_option($con, LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION, 3);
ldap_set_option($con, LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS, 0);
var_dump(@ldap_bind($con, 'user@sub.domain.com', 'password'));

Good luck!  LDAPS can be a real bitch.
