What error do you get from the code?

The code looks like it is using the user credentials, including password:

     //construct login name
     $user = $this->username . LDAP__USERNAME_EXT;

     //bind with the username and password
     $bind = ldap_bind($ldapconn, $user, $this->password);

so it is doing more than just checking for the existence of the user name.
