ldap_error - Return the LDAP error message of the last LDAP command

ldap_error( LDAP\Connection$ldap ): string

Returns the string error message explaining the error generated by the last LDAP command for the given ldap. While LDAP errno numbers are standardized, different libraries return different or even localized textual error messages. Never check for a specific error message text, but always use an error number to check.

Unless you lower your warning level in your php.ini sufficiently or prefix your LDAP commands with @ (at) characters to suppress warning output, the errors generated will also show up in your HTML output.



An LDAP\Connection instance, returned by ldap_connect.

Return Values

Returns string error message.


Version Description
