LDAP Account Manager (LAM) 0.4.4 - February 29th, 2004

A web frontend for managing accounts stored in an OpenLDAP server.


After a year of developing LDAP Account Manager we think that LAM has
reached a state where we can declare it stable.

Thanks a lot to all the people that helped us to improve LAM and make it
such a great tool.

Special thanks go to:

- Clement Laforet for maintaining LAM in FreeBSD
- Matthew Palmer/Andreas Barth who sponsor LAM for Debian
- Zoltan Lohner/Oota Toshiya for their translations
- Andreas Rehm who wrote a howto for LAM
- John H. Terpstra for writing about LAM in his books
- all the people on lam-public and bug submitters

This version closes a lot of minor bugs. There are no new features.

LAM is a set of PHP-scripts to administrate entries of a LDAP server.
User, group and Samba accounts can be displayed, searched, filtered,
added, removed and edited over an easy to use web interface. Even the
configuration options are embedded in the interface.


- management of Unix user and group accounts (posixAccount/posixGroup)
- management of Samba 2.x/3 user and host accounts
- profiles for account creation
- editor for organizational units (OU)
- account creation via file upload
- automatic creation/deletion of home directories
- setting quotas
- support for LDAP+SSL
- multi-language support (English, German, Hungarian, Japanese)
- multiple configuration files
- PDF output for user/group/host accounts
- additional text for user PDFs
