21. Firstly we need to download a copy LDAP Account Manager (LAM) from http://lam.sourceforge.net/download/index.htm.
22. After the files was downloaded, copy it to the folder /var/www/html, then change the current working folder to /var/www/html. Extract the files from the source. Change the folder name to lam, this will help us whenever we need to access ldap account manager from the browser. Make a copy of both files config.cfg_sample and lam.conf_sample and make it as default config file for LAM. Assign permission to the folder accordingly where the LAM will need permission to access.
