View Full Version : PHP LDAP authentication fails when password ends in special character

March 20th, 2009, 02:14 PM

Haven't asked this on php forum yet, but google didnt seem to help ( tried phrasing it several ways). I am writing a bit of code for a php page authenticating against active directory. This works except when a user has a '!' at the end of the password. then it bombs out. The code I am using is bellow.


CORRECTION = Passwords ending in numbers or symbols do not work

Any help would be appreciated.

Ok after reading php.net I finally found waht needs to be done, and if memory serves I have done it before. I needed to utf8 decode the password string.
