Subject FW: [phpldapadmin] re move read only mode

(apologies for the cross posting)

Hi Deon,

Thanks a LOT!

I appreciate it. I on my way to testing the fix right now. In the meanwhile,
I'm forwarding your mail to dev@directory.a.o to see what the ApacheDS folks

I will implement your fix and check out what we've got. Thanks SO much,

Kiran: FYI below. What's your thoughts on this? I would be happy to
volunteer to help facilitate any patch on either side, but do you think that
a query to ApacheDS with a blank attr '' returning all attributes and their
values instead of the DN, is incorrect?

Thanks, to all!

It would appear that a query to ApacheDS with a blank attribute '',
returns the DN, all attributes and their values. We perform this query
in getAttributes(), to work out "internal attributes" and thus all the
attributes were being marked as "Internal" and thus "Read Only".

The same query to other servers (I've tested OpenLDAP, OpenDS, Fedora
DS, W2K3 AD servers (and possibly others)), only returns the DN. (Since
the DN is an internal value, and should only be readonly).  I'm sure
there is an RFC on this, but I cant remember the details. I would
suggest that ApacheDS are doing something non standard - especially
since other LDAP servers I have tested return the expected results.

Anyway, a quick fix for your problem is to set in your config file
