    Hello gia,
    thanks for this great howto. On my joomla 1.7.3 wiith Zimbra 7.1.4 OSE installation it works great. I have a second installation with joomla 2.5.4 and the same Zimbra 7.1.4 OSE it dosn’t work. Error message is: Can’t connect to LDAP Server. Have you maybe any solutions to troubleshooting for me? Thanks in advance.
