OpenLDAP user auth

I am able to login with my LDAP credentials on the /admin/ part of the webinterface.
I see all users in the admin webinterface and can configure them and the server details.

But when I try to login on the /ifolder/ part it fails.

It even says "authenticated user" and "success" in the logfile:

Hi Gurubert,

I read with great interest how you manage your LDAP credential working with /admin on webinterface using OpenLDAP.

I am struggling to get it working and I have googled that many other users are having the same problem. Your experience (though you are still having trouble) is a step ahead and valuable to many and I wonder you are kind enough to share it. I have trouble getting the admin user to authenticate on /admin after successful simias-server-setup and the debug log is displaying that 'admin is not a member of simias'
