Basic HTTP authentication is not using LDAP. You can use PHP_AUTH_USER
and PHP_AUTH_PW to verify that the credentials are correct (they'll be
populated with whatever the user entered). Exactly how you do that is
up to you (hard code it, look in a database, LDAP, etc.). You then
send the 401 response code along with WWW-Authenticate if the
credentials aren't satisfactory.
