It simply can't work. Citing a comment from the URL you have given:

'It is impossible to use Digest and LDAP together. This is because the LDAP
server can only answer to a query like "is password Y correct for user X?", but
it will never give the password. Digest, then, does not send a password to the
server. This means Apache doesn't have a password Y to query the LDAP server.'

You will have to use https instead.
