Code below from the manual. I changed $ldaphost to some fictitious name.
When I ran the script, I always get the message "Connection was successful
!" Why didn't the script bomb and give the could not connect message?


// LDAP variables
$ldaphost = "";  // your ldap servers
$ldapport = 389;                 // your ldap server's port number

// Connecting to LDAP
$ldapconn = ldap_connect($ldaphost, $ldapport)
          or die("Could not connect to $ldaphost");

print "Connection was successful !";

"ldap_connect() will always return a resource as *it does not actually connect but just initializes the connecting parameters.* The actual connect happens with the next calls to ldap_* funcs, usually with ldap_bind()."
